Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Two fragments of flint cores of Mesolithic to Bronze Age date. Both appear to have been used to produce blade like pieces with repeated removals from a prepared platform. Due to the size of the pieces these blades, at least the last to be produced were very short. The dark grey piece (13.47g) is sub-conical with cortex left on one side and parallel removals from an upper platform. The beige-brown piece (35.68g) also has cortex left along one side but has a broken with a large section, possibly 50% or more, missing to a impact in the centre of the upper platform. There are the scars for…

Early Neolithic (c. 4000 to 3500 BC) end scraper: The scraper appears to be knapped from a long flake which is sub-rectangular with a sub trapezoidal section. The dorsal surface has broadly three vertical scars with one lateral edge appearing to be damaged, but not recently. The proximal end tapers in depth. The distal end has abrupt re-touch. The ventral surface has a bulb of percussion and faint conchoidal ripples. The scraper is knapped from flint which has a well-developed cream patina. It measures 54.09mm long, 23.02mm wide, 10.49mm thick and weighing 15.61g. The scraper is an …

Large Egyptian Fayum (or Faiyum) hollow-based point found on the old drive of Wolterton Hall, of brown flint with fine darker bands resembling cracks, these where present within the flint at the time of manufacture as the flakes removals are affected by the difference of hardness. Rather thick (7.25 mm) with only a slight hollowing of the base to form the barbs, the thickness would have restricted the depth of the base. All surfaces are finely pressure flaked with no remnants of the original flake from which this was likely to have been made from. Almost complete, with only the extreme…

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete polished flint axehead of Neolithic date, c. 4000-2350 BC. The axehead is bi-convex and has a sub-rectangular profile and a pointed oval section. It has a smooth ground surface and a tapered ground curvilinear cutting edge. The axehead terminates at a blunt break part-way along its length. The break bears traces of the same cream discolouration as the outer surfaces, suggesting that the break is old. Small flakes have been lost from both surfaces of the axehead, and one large flake has been lost from the edge of one surface, at the narrowest part of the axehead. The axeh…

Dark grey, though appearing brown under transmitted light, semi-translucent flint; plano-convex knife. A thin oval-ended flake with broad and narrow flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a bulb at the narrower end of a slightly concave ventral surface. Very short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsa;l side appears along one side of the narrower part of the object. A complete lack of surface patina may suggest it was incorporated into a sealed context until recently. Suggested date: Early Neolithic, 4000-3500 BC.

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Grey flint lithic implement. A thick pointed flake with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a bulbar ventral surface. Short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows a curved edge, which would have permitted its use as a scraper. This edge terminates in a point which could have permitted an ancillary use as a borer. Misty patina has formed over all struck surfaces, suggesting the object has subsequently endured a period of exposure to a calcareous environment. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC Length: 40.8mm, Width: 27mm, Thickness: 11mm, Weight: 10.61gms

Misty patina has formed over all struck surfaces, suggesting the object has subsequently endured a period of exposure to a calcareous environment.

Dark grey flint scraper. A small chunk with broad flakes struck from each of its three sides from a flat striking platform, suggesting it to have been a core. Short abrupt retouch following a curved edge marks its conversion to or completion as a scraper. Dense misty patina covers all struck surfaces, suggesting the object has subsequently endured a period of exposure to a calcareous environment.

Grey flint with cortex possible leaf-shaped arrowhead. A thin oval flake with narrow parallel flakes removed from its dorsal surface, trimming cortex which in part remains. There is a bulb at one end of the basal surface. Patches of misty patina may suggest the object has endured exposure to a calcareous environment after its deposition. The finder kindly suggests this to be debitage, perhaps in this case as an unfinished arrowhead.

Grey flint fabricator fragment. An oval section tool with covering angled scalar retouch across both its sides, rounded at one end and flat at the other. The latter may evidence an ancient break, as a light misty patina extends across all surfaces, suggesting the object has endured a limited period of exposure to a calcareous environment.

Flint plano-convex knife fragment. The pointed end of a knife with a curved dorsal surface bearing covering angled scalar retouch, and with a flat ventral surface. A misty patina has developed over all surfaces including the fractured end, showing the object was broken in antiquity, and has subsequently endured exposure to a calcareous environment.

County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint possible backed blade. An oval flake with broad parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side, a near-flat ventral surface, and a narrow long flake struck from along one edge of the ventral surface which may have permitted pressure to be exerted on the putative cutting edge opposite. The scalloped or serrated appearance of the cutting edge is perhaps a result of fortuitous edge-on impacts, albeit occuring in antiquity. A dense creamy patina overall suggests the object has subsequently endured a prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC

Surface collection of fifty five worked-out cores, All appear to be hard hammer struck and most are opportunistic collections of naturally "frost" fractured fragments of larger nodules worked from several platforms to produce small, sharp flakes, then discarded. All grades of flint are represented in this collection, and the majority are patinated to some degree, either a patchy light grey to almost white in a few cases. Only three are of the "opposed platform" reduction strategy to produce blade-like flakes, with overlapping of the flake scars at the mid-point of the face, a useful t…
