County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint possible edge-polished fragment. A chunk of lentoid section with an apparently curving cutting edge with polishing immediately adjacent to it, but otherwise bearing the scars of covering scalar working entailing hard hammer removal of a small number of large flakes. Though the putative cutting edge is crisp, the object is broken c.40mm behind it. All surfaces, including the putative fracture surface, are identically covered by a dense creamy patina and are iron stained, features suggesting a prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment followed by incorporation in gravels. Thi…

Object type: TRANCHET AXEHEAD
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint tranchet axehead from the early Mesolithic period (c.9000 - 8000 BC). The flint is a dark brownish-grey and fairly opaque with elements of the cortex visible. The axe is crudely worked, with a rounded cutting edge, roughly parallel sides and a pointed butt. It has a broadly triangular cross-section. The flint appears to be in the second stage of being worked due to the patches of cortex on its butt and and its ventral and dorsal faces. Also, a soft hammering technique seems to have been used, identifiable by the weak ripple marks and low bulbs of percussion. The broad shape of…

Object type: MICROBURIN
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Shropshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Highly patinated probable microlith of late Mesolithic date 6500-3500 BC. The microlith is sub-triangular in plan and formed from the very base of a snapped flint blade. There is no evidence for retouch or secondary working Microliths have multiple uses from being set to form harpoons and arrows too small saws and other utilitarian tool types. It is possible gived the pointed nature of the tip of the flint that this may possibly have been a Microburin like tool - the flint is too heavily eroded to be sure - there is no evidence for detailed retouch around the tip which may substant…

A large flint core of early Mesolithic or early Neolithic date. The core is cylindrical with one platform and parallel striking of narrow blades. One face of the object has narrower scars from blade removal while on the opposite face wider blades have been removed down the length of the core with shorter narrower blades removed from above (towards the striking platform) at a diagonal angle to the lower removals. The removed flints appear to have been blades. There is no visible sign of platform dressing. A strip of light cream cortex remains along the length of one side of the core…

Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A lithic implement, likely of the Lower Palaeolithic Acheulian flint industry, dating from the Lower Palaeolithic to Early Middle Palaeolithic c.450,000-180,000 BC. Description: The implement is sub-triangular shape with one rounded edge. The entire surface has large covering flaking with some medium parallel retouch to create the scraper edge. The other end is pointed and, while the object is bifacially flaked it is too small to be classified as a handaxe. The flint is a medium orangey brown with some medium brown iron staining. There appears to be some desert gloss on the scraper…

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A tertiary flint scraper. This flint has a subtriangular cross-section with a longitudinal mid ridge along one surface. The opposite side has evidence of a shallow bulb or percussion and very shallow S-shaped profile indicative of soft hammer working. All surfaces are heavily recorticated except for the areas of retouch suggesting that these are evidence of more recent reworking. It is possible that this piece of flint initially broke and was debitage during blade production and then later reused. The retouch is present on the two longitudinal opposite edges. This retouch is short, sc…

County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
An arrowhead, formed from tertiary flint, that is either barbed and tanged with the barbs having broken off or was originally a leaf shaped arrowhead that has been reworked to have a tang at the middle of the lower edge. The arrowhead is bifacially worked with covering low angle parallel retouch on the ventral side. The other side has long to invasive low angle scaled retouch. The arefact has recorticated although this has been removed at the base of the arrowhead around the tang. It is uncertain whether this is a result of reworking or later depositional damage. Weight is 1.70g, leng…

Record ID: CAM-28B4CD
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A primary flint, very late and very crudely made, scraper. A large inclusion occupies approximately half of the inner surface of the flint, which seems to have two hinge fractures along two edges. The most obvious of these has an abrupt near vertical angle although this may account for later damage. The other possible hinge fracture, if it is such, is much more subtle running along the edge of the flint. However this may just be how the flint has fractured at a shallow, very low angle between the flint and cortex. The opposite edge has short scaled abrupt retouch. Possibly a reutilise…

A tertiary flint, late, scraper. This piece of flint is a pale orangey-brown suggesting that it had been subjected to iron staining and a pale grey shows through on the areas of retouch. The retouch is short, scaled and abrupt. A fragment of fossil or shell impression is present on one side of this object. Weight is 10.43g, length is 44.3mm, width is 34.0mm and thickness is 10.3mm. The utililisation of natural flints is a feature of late flint industries. Working note: scraper 3. Finder's reference: A2.

A flint coarse retouched flake probably dating to the later Bronze Age. The object is triangular in cross-section with the remains of cortex on one side of the dorsal face. At the proximal end is a large triangular striking platform while a small (possibly accidental) triangular platform is at the distal end. Along the long edge the retouch is short, sub-parallel and at a low angle. A small amount of retouch is also on the opposite edge where the cortex has been removed. It is also short, sub-parallel and low angled. The flint has a dark grey cortex and a toffee brown to light cream m…

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Leaf-shaped Neolithic flint knife or oval side scraper dating from c. 3000-2100BC. This object appears to have been bifacially flaked suggesting that it is a knife. However, we do not have a side view for this object (only two images were provided by the finder) so we cannot be certain. It looks to have pressure flaking on dorsal side. It was probably formed on tertiary debitage rather than a deliberate stuck core.

A complete Neolithic flint flaked axehead, dating to the period BC 4000-2400. The axehead is sub-oval in plan as it is rounded at one terminal and tapers to a rounded point at the other. It is triangular in cross section. It has been struck from a black-grey flint with light brown inclusions, and retains c.10% cortex. Both faces exhibit covering, scaled, semi-abrupt flaking. The flaked axehead measures 131.17mm in length, 44.60mm in width and 32.69mm in thickness.
