Record ID: LIN-677B3C
Object type: KNIFE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: North East Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Neolithic flint knife. The knife is made from a tertiary flake of dark brown-black coloured flint. The knife is slender, plano-convex in section, and tapers from the butt to the terminal. The lower third of the flint is smooth and bears a mid-brown patina. There is little or no retouch along the sides of the brown area, which might suggest that this item was once hafted. There is a flat striking platform at the proximal end. Low-angled, scaled retouch is visible along both sides and tip. The retouch covers the surface of the tip, but not the main body below.

Object type: LEAF ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete leaf shaped flint arrowhead of probable earlier Neolithic date (4000 - 2700 BC) formed on a tertiary flake. The flake is pointed oval in plan and has scaled low angle retouch on both faces. The retouch on both sides is only seen around the perimeter. Traces of the bulb of percussion can be seen on the ventral surface. The striking platform has been worked. The flint is mid-orange with a dark streak through the middle.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A collection of three flint secondary and tertiary bladelets of Mesolithic to early Neolithic date (c. 10,000 BC - 4000 BC). They are brownish grey in colour and semi-translucent at the edges. 1) The first bladelet is long and sub-rectangular in plan, with long sides that are almost parallel. It is rounded at the proximal end and square at the distal end. It is sub-trapezoidal in cross-section.The ventral face is generally flat and smooth, with a shallow bulb of percussion. There may be some very fine, short, scaled retouching at the distal end. Overall dimensions: 37.63mm in length…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete knapped flint scraper dating to the later Neolithic or Bronze Age (c. 3000 BC - 1150 BC). The object is broadly oval shaped, with a flattened butt and rounded working edge. Struck from a core of mottled dark to medium grey flint, a tertiary flake with none of the cortex being retained. The platform is sub-triangular in plan and secondary modification in the form of directly applied scaled retouch is visible at the distal end. Preserved in fresh condition and largely unpatinated. The overall dimensions are as follows: 41.6mm in length, 28.84mm in width, 11.95mm in thickness …

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A late Neolithic or early Bronze Age flint end scraper or knife. Only approximately half of the tool survives. The surviving part is the proximal end, and contains a striking platform. A bulb of percussion is visible on the ventral surface. The dorsal surface has a a large flake-removal scar running down the centre, with several narrower others flanking it on both sides. No retouch is visible; this, presumably, was on the end that is now missing. The flint appears to have snapped almost horizontally across the flint. The flint is mottled brown.

An incomplete flint Arrowhead of late Neolithic to Bronze Age date (2500-1200 BC). The object is a barbed and tanged form and is sub-triangular in plan and shallowly pointed oval in section. One of the tangs is missing. Both dorsal and ventral surfaces have covering stepped flaking. The left and right hand edges have fine, low angled retouch. The lithic retains no cortex and is therefore a tertiary flake. The flint a light orange/brown in colour. Length: 42mm, Width: 26mm.

Object type: BARBED AND TANGED ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete flint barbed-and-tanged arrowhead of Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age date, circa 2400 BC - 1000 BC. The arrowhead is roughly triangular in plan. One of the barbs is incomplete, but the complete example measures 27mm in length and 2mm in thickness. It is lozenge-shaped in section until it meets the main body. The tang is also roughly lozenge-shaped in section, but is snapped shortly after it leaves the body. The break across the other barb is patinated the same as the rest of the arrowhead, which suggests that it was broken in antiquity. The arrowhead is made of a l…
