Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A scraper of probable Neolithic date, 4000 - 2350 BC. The scraper is formed from a secondary flake. There is a small amount of cortex remaining at the proximal end, where there is the striking platform. The flake is mottled grey in colour. On the dorsal face there is semi-abrupt, semi-parallel extensive retouch at the distil end. A flake has been removed towards the right mesal, to facilitate holding the scraper between the thumb and the first index finger. The ventral face is smooth with a low bulb of percussion. Length: 26.6mm, Width: 19.5mm and Thickness: 7.1mm. Weight: 5.2gm

A fragment probably from the blade end of a polished stone axehead of Neolithic date (c. 4000 - 2350 BC). The fragment appears to be the corner of the blade end of the axehead, with a diagonal break at the top end of the fragment. A further horizontal break is evident at the base of the fragment. A section of the tapered cutting edge is evident with ground and polished sides. The axehead is made of a fine grained igneous rock, possibly dolerite, and is rough with quartz inclusions. The fragment is 55.6mm in length, 34.1mm in width, and has a thickness of 22.6mm. The weight is 61.2 gm.…

An incomplete ceramic figurine in the form of a child's doll of probable post medieval date, 1800 - 1900. The figurine is broken and the lower legs are missing.
