Object type: END SCRAPER
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint flake end scraper of probable Neolithic to Bronze Age date (c. 3500 - 800 BC). The flint is dark brown in colour with slight light brown mottles. It is broadly trapezoidal in shape, with one straight and one curved long edge. The longer short edge displays short, semi-abrupt, scaled retouch on the dorsal face. The ripples of percussion on the ventral face curve across the length of the object. The object is 22.50mm in length, 14.02mm in width and 4.53mm in thickness. It weighs 1.70g.

Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint flake debitage of uncertain prehistoric date (c. 10,000 - 800 BC). The flake is D-shaped both in plan and section and formed from light-brown, mottled flint. There is a patch of cortex remaining on the dorsal face, suggesting this is a secondary flake. There is a very slight bulb of percussion at one end. There is no evidence of retouch. The flake is 49.95mm in length, 19.29mm in width and 4.13mm in thickness. It weighs 3.72g.

Object type: AXE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Cumbria
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Neolithic Langdale axe dating from c. 2500-2100BC. The axe is somewhat worn and abraded with some older damage and a few recent chips taken off. The axe was ground and polished and has a very smooth, shiny surface. It is now of dirty-white/beige colour but was probably dark blueish green to start with. The axe is knapped from a light blueish/grey buff volcanic tuff. This axe is, like many of the larger and finished (polished) Langdale axes, sub-rectangular plan with distinctive humped faces. The axe fragment has been damaged in several areas (old and fresh damage). The recent damage c…

County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Late Bronze Age to early Iron Age off white heat effected flint or chert notched end scraper. There is evidence of light retouch to the mesal edges, possibly for use as side scrapers, & heavy modification to the distal end. The The distal modification was probably to make the tool more comfortable & easier to use and it may also have been to allow it to be mounted. Most likely to date to the late Bronze Age but manufacture in the early Iron Age cannot be dismissed due to the crude style of knapping. Dates to between c1000 and c400 BC. The length is 58mm, the width is 41mm and…

A scraper of Late Neolithic to Late Bronze Age date (-2500 -800 BC) being heavily worked down and manufactured on a tertiary flake fragment of black flint, with the distal end cloudy white/light beige. The bulb of percussion is absent but there are pronounced ripples on the ventral face, which has been long retouched with four or five stepped fractures and semi-abrupt retouch on the left side, but the edge has been worn away. The dorsal face has a layered series of flake facets but very little retouch has been applied to the edges on the ventral face, except at the distal end where an…

Probably a flint flake or a fragment of a bifacially worked flint knife, dating from the Neolithic period, that is c. 4000-2350BC. The knife was bifacially worked with some cortex remaining on the right side, along the edge. On the opposite site, the edge shows clear retouch/serrated edge.

County: Cumbria

Nearly complete upper half of a Roman beehive quern, probably dating from the 2nd century AD. The stone is very heavy and dome-shaped with a very worn, but probably formerly fluted upper surface. The bottom is flat. Only a small part is missing, but the central perforation as well as the side hole for the wooden handle are still present. Unmalted grain would have been poured into the vertical perforation at the top whilst there would have been a wooden handle in the horizontal hole for turning the quern stone on top of the lower stone. The rotary quern used circular motions to grind t…

A flint thumb-nail scraper of very late Neolithic/Early Bronze Age date c.2400-2100 BC. The flint is sub-rounded save for the striking platform edge. It has has short scaled abrupt retouch around the entirety of the rounded edges. The ventral face has been heavily rework to flatten the bulb of percussion with long invasive low angled retouch. Almost all the striking appears to be with heavy hammer technology. The scraper is a limid reddish yellow with mottling possibly from being exposed. The length is 27mm, the width is 14mm, thickness 13mm and the weight 3.77g.

County: North Yorkshire

Flint flake from a blade prepared core of possible late Mesolithic to Bronze Age date. It appears to have been hit with a hard hammer (probably stone) at the base which has resulted in the fracture damage. It has fine damage around the edges, some of this could be post-depositional, but the natural more pointed tip has damage that suggests this may have been through use. Length: 30mm; width: 19mm; thickness: 8mm; weight: 5g

A convexly profiled bi-facial lithic flint, with a pointed end and a rounded base. It is uniformly black in colour. There is multi-directional flake removal on the surface of both faces and retouch particularly around its widest edge. Its size would suggest its use as a possible scraper.

A dark grey flint fragment of uniform thickness, with a fairly flat butt and partially rounded distal end, which shows evidence of having being re-worked due to the possible strong hinge fracture marks across the bottom third of the ventral face. A further small flake has been removed from the end of the striking platform, showing the conchoidal fracture marks. The reverse side shows some possible pressure flaking along its lower edge, with another small flake removed centrally on the edge, again suggesting re-working or damage. The length is 28mm, the width is 24mm, thickness 8mm and…

A small, triangular shaped flake, light brown in colour with both lighter and darker inclusions. On the dorsal edge there is a previous flake scar that has been broken sharply and the flint then probably turned to be reworked. A possible striking platform at the proximal end of the ventral side is apparent, with some evidence of the longer medial edge showing retouch. The length is 31mm, the width is 19mm and the weight 1.74g.

Late Mesolithic tertiary black chert microlith. It is sub rectangular in plan & profile & triangular in section. The straight edges are formed by abrubt breaks. The cutting edge is the most curved edge and has short, sub parallel, abrubt retouch. It would have been set into wood, bone or antler as part of a composite tool.

Late Mesolithic to Early Neolithic tertiary black chert microlith - an end scraper & burin/gouge, formed on probable microlithic debitage. There are two definite burins/gouges at the distsal end and three projections with wear gloss that have some working and appear to have been used for a similar purpose. Short, sub parallel, abrubt retouch to the end formed into a scraper. This was originally the proximal end & is evidence of reuse. The scars left when the scraper was formed have a fresher patina than elsewhere on the artefact. The date of the intial phase of working is probably c65…
