County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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…

County: Cumbria
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint scraper dating to the Bronze Age (c. 2150 - 800 BC). The object is oval in form with a broadly flat ventral surface and convex dorsal surface. The flint is dark brown in colour with white patches. Formed from a flake, there is a bulb of percussion at one end of the ventral surface. The ventral surface displays scaled short abrupt retouch around three sides. The object is 72.43mm in length, 36.33mm in width and 10.55mm in thickness. It weighs 40.46g.

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Dark grey, appearing brown under transmitted light, flint with cortex; notched scraper. Flake with a broad flake trimmed from its dorsal side by hard hammer strike, and with a bulb at the narrower end of a markedly concave ventral surface. Very short abrupt retouch executed from the ventral aspect follows part of one edge to form a notch. The appearance of similar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect is misleading, and arises from adventitious edge-on impacts. The finder kindly cites PUBLIC-7040A5 as a parallel. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC Length: 41.1mm, Width: …

Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Warwickshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lower Palaeolithic (c.800,000-180,000 BC) bifacially worked andesite tuff handaxe. It is pointed in form with a pointed oval in cross-section. The tip is truncated, the surface of the truncation matches that of the rest of the axe, so is therefore not recent. The butt is slightly pointed, but off-centre. Both faces have covering, low angled and scalar retouch, although one lateral edge is a single abrupt face, which may be due to damage rather than design, although the surface condition and colouring matches that of the rest of the axe. The surface of the axe shows some patination, …

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
Flint possible knife fragment. A narrow flake with long narrow parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a flat ventral surface. A dense creamy patina with orange spots suggests it has subsequently endured a prolonged period of exposure to a calcareous environment, and possibly incorporation into gravel. One end is flat, probably as a result of an ancient break. The finder kindly cites NLM-966C45 as a parallel. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC Length: 29.3mm, Width: 13.7mm, Thickness: 4.2mm, Weight: 1.93gms

Grey flint, appearing pale brown under transmitted light, with cortex spot; debitage. A narrow bladelet with long parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a slightly concave ventral surface. The appearance of retouch noted by the finder probably arises from fortuitous edge-one impacts. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC.

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.

Grey flint, appearing brown under transmitted light, with cortex; borer. A small nodule with one rounded end with thick cortex retained, and long narrow parallel flakes struck from its dorsal surface. The ventral surface is smooth and concave; the appearance of retouch executed from the ventral aspect is misleading, and arises from fortuitous edge-on impacts. The finder kindly cites SUR-42CD37 as a parallel. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC Length: 49.9mm, Width: 19.9mm, Thickness: 17.9mm, Weight: 10.75gms

Dark grey flint with cortex strip, scraper. A thick oval chunk with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side by multangular hard hammer strike, trimming most cortex. The underside is unevenly broken. 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 scraper, as kindly identified by the finder. A thick flake with broad and narrow parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a bulb at one end of a slightly concave ventral surface. Angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows the curved end. Given the age of the object, a lack of surface patina may point to its inclusion in a sealed context until recently.

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.

Grey flint, appearing brown under transmitted light, scraper. A tiny chip with broad parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a bulb at one end of the ventral surface. Initially identified as a fragment of debitage, the magnified view obtained by photographic manipulation for presentation here reveals very short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect following the curved end.
