Black flint, possibly collected from the East Coast, possible gunflint, as kindly suggested by the finder. A sub-rectangular flake with broad flakes struck from its dorsal surface and with a bulbar ventral surface which is now chipped with a particularly battered zone in the base of the large shallow hollow which resulted. In view of the suggested identification, much of the damage to the flint may have arisen in the course of its use. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1600-1800. Length: 24.3mm, Width: 21.2mm, Thickness: 7mm, Weight: 4.13gms

Glass gemstone. An oval translucent glass stone of biconvex lentoid section, with rhomboid facets on both sides, now smoothed by wear, and with recent chipping along the aris where the sides meet. The tint resembles that of an amethyst, which this is not; the glass is, however, without discernible bubbles, and so may be of fairly recent date. The bifacial working suggests pendant use, presumably framed, and possibly as a necklace or ear ring component. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1750-1850. Length: 21.6mm, Width: 12.1mm, Thickness: 6.8mm, Weight: 2.51gms

Dark blue grey flint gunflint. A square flake, flat on its dorsal side and with a prominent bulb on the ventral. Short scalar retouch executed from the ventral aspect follows three thicker edges, with indications of battering from light use along their arises. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1600-1850. Length: 24.4mm, Width: 24.3mm, Thickness: 8.7mm, Weight: 7.22gms.

Black flint with cortex, probably collected from the East Coast, gunflint. Sub-rectangular flint with cortex trimmed by multi-directional hard hammer working from the dorsal aspect, and with abrupt scalar retouch along its thicker side also executed from the dorsal aspect. The thinner side is battered by impact from use, and also by light post-depositional damage. The finder suggests this could be a French gunflint. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1700-1850. Length: 24.4mm, Width: 22.4mm, Thickness: 10mm, Weight: 7.32gms.

A post-medieval/modern gun-flint from a flintlock musket. The flint is rectangular in plan and cross-section with sloping edges to give it a trapezoidal side view. The flint is mid-grey in colour. The flintlock was introduced in the middle of the 16th century but it was not until the reign of William III that the flintlock became the main regulation firearm for the British Army. The knapped flint was used within the musket mechanism to produce a spark and would last between 20-25 shots before it had to be replaced, ' Clive Bond, 0.

Dark Grey flint Gunflint. The finder kindly cites WAW-DAC006 as a parallel. Knapped rectangular plano-convex flint with bevelled edges on its convex side, and with impact scars from use at both its ends. For earlier periods this would be used with a firelock musket or wheel lock pistol, for which ignition of the propellant charge was by sparks from a struck flint gripped in the jaws of a holder, rather than the slow match or impregnated cord which was used with most larger weapons such as muskets and hand guns until the later 17th century. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1600-1850. …

A post-medieval (AD c.1610-c.1830) gun flint in its lead 'flint pad'. The purpose of the 'flint pad' was to hold the gun flint within the jaws of the cock (the moving part of the flintlock mechanism). 'Flint pads' are sometimes made of leather, but lead was often prefered (and still is by modern black-powder enthusiasts). Roughly 60% of the flint is covered by the lead. Overall, the gunflint measures 17.4mm long, 28.9mm wide and 10.3mm thick. It weighs 16.39g. The flint itself measures c.14.5mm long, 23.4mm wide and c.5.3mm thick. It is broadly rectangular in shape. The upper face …

A post-medieval gun-flint from a flintlock musket. The flint is broadly rectangular in plan and is of the classic wedge shape in section. Retouch is visible around all sides. One of the long edges is worked from both sides, thus giving it an outward V-shaped profile. No cortex survives, and no striking platform is present. The flint is dark brown/charcoal in colour. The flintlock was introduced in the middle of the 16th century but it was not until the reign of William III that the flintlock became the main regulation firearm for the British Army. The knapped flint was used within …

Lead and Flint Gunflint (as identified by finder). Rectangular fragment of cast lead sheet of 2.4mm thickness, cut to shape and folded around a small tabular knapped flake of mid grey flint. The fold in the lead bears a curving impression with a hole which may relate to fixing of the flint. The flint is small; a piece of lead may have been used as an economiser to extend its life, as the overall thickness of lead and flint resembles that of the more common and larger gunflints seen by this reporter. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1600-1800. Length: 20.3mm, Width/Height: 16.3mm…

Possible gun flint. The dorsal surface has parallel edges and a squared surface. The ventral surface is slightly concave and shows the bulb of percussion. The sides do show secondary working in keeping with scrapers, however the overall shape would appear to indicate a gun flint.
