  • Thumbnail image of NARC-55E9DB

Record ID: NARC-55E9DB
Object type: PERFORATED OBJECT
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Northamptonshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete perforated stone hammer, or 'mace head' of Mesolithic to Neolithic date (9000-2200 BC). The object was originally been sub-ovate in plan, with a circular perforation with a typical hour glass shape. The upper and lower surfaces are convex, tapering towards a central edge. Approximately 50% of the object is missing due to a transverse fracture across the centre of the object. The retained face of the mace is worn and abraded and looks to have been caused by use rather than by post-depositional wear. The stone is a dark red-brown colour and is probably quartzite. The Br…

Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Isle of Wight
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete Mesolithic (possibly) flint lithic implement (c. 9000 BC-c. 4000 BC). This implement, made on a tertiary blade, is sub-triangular in plan and cross-section. The dorsal face has three major negative flake removals. The dorsal face has been retouched all around the edges including the proximal end adjacent to the striking platform where the retouch is very fine. This retouch around the edges is short, largely parallel and semi-abrupt. On the ventral face the bulb of percussion has been removed in the process of making the implement thinner at this end. The distal end of the v…

Record ID: NLM-32B929
Object type: TRANCHET AXEHEAD
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Grey-green flint with cortex probable tranchet axehead. A thick triangular flake with cortex lightly trimmed from the dorsal side, though some of its loss should be ascribed to adventitious edge-on impacts. The ventral side bears the scars of covering multi-directional angled scalar hard hammer working, with the broader end of the object sharpened by the removal of one large flake. Subsequent angled scalar retouch either tidied or sharpened this cutting edge. Suggested date: Early Mesolithic, 10,000-7000 BC. Length: 82.6mm, Width: 43.4mm, Thickness: 19.2mm, Weight: 49.64gms.

Record ID: NLM-31A063
Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Grey flint debitage. A tiny struck flake with long parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a slightly concave and rippled ventral surface. Reported long with a group of Late Mesolithic flakes and a core from the same broad location, but this is a slightly different flint from the rest of the group. A very slight misting of surface patina may suggest this was exposed to a calcareous environment, but for a relatively short time. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC. Length: 20.1mm, Width: 10.9mm, Thickness: 3.9mm, Weight: 0.81gms

Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Dark brown flint with cortex, debitage. Four flakes of distinctively coloured flint reported together as from the same location, together with a Late Mesolithic core (NLM-318B30). The characteristics of this group include hard-hammer trimming of cortex, the removal of parallel flakes, and in one case a markedly concave ventral surface. These are all consistent with an origin in the same episode of working with a selected non-local flint. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC. Combined Weight: 24.44gms

Grey-buff flint knife fragment. A narrow blade with long narrow parallel bladelets struck from its dorsal side and with a faintly rippled and lightly bulbar ventral surface. The struck surfaces are lightly misted with patina, suggesting the object has endured a limited period of exposure to a calcareous environment. The object is broken with a positive hinged fracture at its wider end, probably as recent damage. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC.

Dark chocolate brown flint, scraper. A small thumbnail scraper with broad parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a bulbar ventral surface with a prominent striking platform. Angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows the curved edge. Thumbnail scrapers are usually assigned to the Early Bronze Age. However, the neat parallel trimming of the dorsal side may here commend an earlier date. This is also suggested by the distinctive material, which is probably of non-local origin and is usually associated with earlier forms of tool. Suggested date: Unknown, La…
