Record ID: YORYM-1EA625
Object type: FABRICATOR
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete knapped lithic implement of Mesolithic to Neolithic date, circa 7000 - 3500 BC. The implement is a fabricator which is sub-ovate in both plan and section formed of a tertiary flake. The implement has been extensively worked in an irregular scaled pattern on all sides having numerous flakes of varying sizes removed from each surface. More extensive stepped, abrupt retouch is evident along both edges. The flint is a burnt orange in colour with lighter inclusions. The implement is 79.8mm long, 23.3mm wide, 9.5mm thick and weighs 19.3g. Fabricators may have been used in leathe…

Record ID: YORYM-098EAE
Object type: CORE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete flint core of late Mesolithic date, c.7000 - 4000 BC. The core is conical with a tapering sub-ovate section. The core displays two negative scars from blade removal. The flint is a light grey colour with a large area of remaining cortex. The implement is 26.7mm long, 23.1mm wide, 18.3mm thick and weighs 11.5g. This is a relatively small core, suggesting it could have been carried around and maintained for continued use to produce small blades as required over time. Broader flakes are indicative of an earlier Mesolithic date, with a general move towards narrower flakes in t…

Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Two flakes of flint debitage, probably dating to the Neolithic to Early Bronze age, c. 4000-1,600BC, by association with other material found as part of the same assemblage. Both flakes are tertiary, representing two separate types of flint. The striking platform and bulb of percussion are retained on a single flake, where it is relatively pronounced and scarred. On the same flake, the negative removal scars on the dorsal face are irrgular in size and struck from a platform at roughly 45 degrees to the surviving platform. The second flake terminates in a hinge fracture, with only a sin…

A retouched flint flake, probably an unfinished oblique arrowhead, probably dating to the Late Neolithic, c. 3,300-2,400BC. A tertiary sub-triangular flake of translucent beige-brown flint, with the proximal and distal ends worked away. Two edges of the flake exhibit retouch. On the dorsal face it is present along the right lateral edge, where it is low angle, scalar and invasive. On the ventral face it is prsent on the proximal and right edges, again invasive and scaler, but more semi-abrupt at the proximal end.

Seven flint scrapers of probable Neolithic to Early Bronze Age date, c. 4000-1,600 BC. 1. Incomplete secondary flake of slightly translucent brown flint with a small area of cortex surviving at the remaining distal end.

Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Incomplete ovate or cordate handaxe of Wymer's (1999) type J or K. Invasive soft hammer percussion to both faces, removing all trace of the cortex and/or any trace of the original blank (frost fracture, large flake or flat nodule). The flint is patinated a pale off-white with faint yellowish mottles, both faces have a few spots of iron stains. The flint is cracked by thermal (frost) exposure, the cracks are more extensive on one face than the other, and is responsible for the loss of the tip, the breaks followed the crack lines and are patinated the same as the rest of the handaxe, ind…

Object type: AXE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Short, stout axe of off-white patination with the coarse inclusions now light grey in appearance, with spotty iron stains to both faces, mostly to the high points. All flake removals are hard hammer struck, the flaking angles to the edges are at 90 degrees so many removals have repeatedly terminated in step or hinges, the edges are not ground after flaking. The cutting edge is only slightly convex and is very likely to have been reshaped from an originally longer axe, presumably after damage to the original cutting edge has occurred from use. The patination is complete and unmarred at…

Secondary, hard hammer struck flake, of slightly iron oxide stained pale grey flint, graduating to black from one end to the other. With patination pale streaks to the ventral face only.

Object type: TRANCHET AXEHEAD
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Bournemouth
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Mesolithic tranchet axe or adze, rectangular in plan, lozenge-shaped in profile, triangular in section at the butt end and lenticular at the slightly wider blade end. Made on an elongated flint nodule which has been flaked from both faces to remove most of the cortex, except for a small patch at the butt end, to produce the outline shape of the axe. Large flakes have been removed from one edge of both faces, mid-way along the axe, resulting in a thinning of the axe at this point, apparently for hafting the axe. At the blade end, the axe has been thinned on both faces by the removal o…

County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint axe dating from the Neolithic period, an elongated oval in plan, and lozenge-shaped in profile and section. Made on a flint nodule which has been flaked on both sides to produce the shape of the axe: a series of regular, large flake scars is visible along both margins and on both faces. The resulting tool is thin at the edges, with a thick ridge along the medial line on both faces and two narrow, curved ends. All of the cortex has been removed by this process. The principal cutting end, or blade, is wider than the butt which is also thin enough to have also been used for cuttin…

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A ficron hand axe of the Acheulean tradition, dating from the Lower Palaeolithic period, originally from the collection of Roy Rainbird Clarke (1914-1963). In plan, the axe is triangular with concave sides, typical of the ficron style of hand axe (Wymer, Mode 2, Type M). Made on a flint nodule the flint has been flaked to remove most of the cortex, except for a large patch at the butt end, producing a tapering axe which is lozenge-shaped in section. The narrow tip has been finely flaked to a point. The surface of the flint is coated with a thick, silky patina which has become a deep or…

Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint bifacial ovate hand axe dating from the Lower Palaeolithic period, originally from the collection of Roy Rainbird Clarke (1914-1963). The hand axe belongs to the Acheulean tradition and is classified by Wymer (1999) as Mode 2, Type K on page 11, fig.4. Made on a large flint flake which has been worked by the removal of flakes around the circumference of the flake to produce a roughout, followed by thinning using a soft hammer to remove shallow flakes from both faces, removing all traces of the original flint cortex. The domed dorsal face has been finished by the removal of a se…
