  • Thumbnail image of NLM-A436CC

Record ID: NLM-A436CC
Object type: KNIFE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Grey flint knife. A trapezoid flake with broad and narrow flakes struck from its dorsal side, and with a bulb and ripples on its ventral surface. One end may then have received short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect along a curved end. A misty patina then formed over all surfaces, suggesting the object was discarded and endured a period of exposure to a calcareous environment. The patina was subsequently removed along one straight edge by short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect. This represents a flake reused after its initial deposition; the Neolithic period…

Object type: HAMMERSTONE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Coarse-grained pink quartzite [non-specialist identification by MF] possible hammer stone, as kindly suggested by the finder. An oval pebble with flat sides, possibly formed and smoothed by rolling in water or by Aeolian 'desert glossing', with one flat and three battered zones around its edge, the latter revealing crystalline structures. The object appears attractive and may well have been selected, perhaps from glacial drift, for its fleshy colour. The localised abrasion could have arisen from relatively light hard hammer working, a technique especially characteristic of the Neolithi…

Secondary, hard hammer struck blade-flake, of unpatinated glossy brown flint with thick cortex to the left side of the dorsal face when viewed with the (faceted) platform uppermost, the distal end is broken by a transverse bending fracture, now steeply retouched or worn from use as a scraping edge. The right lateral edge is also steeply retouched along its entire length, presumably used as a side scraper.

Object type: RETOUCHED FLAKE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A retouched flint flake of probable Neolithic or Bronze Age date, c. 4000-1500 BC. The tool has been manufactured from a tertiary flake of fine-grained brownish grey translucent flint, with a prominent bulb of percussion on its ventral face inferring hard-hammer percussion. The platform is irregular in form and cortical, while the dorsal left edge demonstrates inverse scalar low-angle retouch. Preserved in fresh condition with no patination visible, it measures 30.48mm in length, 31.55mm in width, and 6.28mm thick at its midpoint. It weighs 5.78g.

County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Possible plano-convex or discoidal knife of unusual form, a secondary, hard hammer struck flake with previous centripetal flake removals to the dorsal face. Of dark brown patinated flint, bulb removed by semi-invasive direct percussion struck from the dorsal face. One lateral edge is invasively retouched only on the dorsal face with seven flake scars (by pressure-flaking?), this is restricted to a natural projection of the "blank" flake.

Secondary, hard hammer struck flake, of yellowish patinated mottled grey flint, unusually, the proximal end is steeply retouched to form the scraping edge, removing the bulb in the process. One lateral edge is broadly concave, but appears to be recently damaged, the distal end is retouched to form an angled, beak-like small scraping edge.

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Gwynedd
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A broken axe head. The find represents the cutting edge end of a Neolithic polished axe head belonging to the Group VII (Graig Lwyd) classification. It is sub-rectangular in plan; tapering towards a transverse break at the point the axe was likely hafted. It seems likely this break occurred in antiquity. In section it is sub-ovate with flattened sides. The blade, mostly intact, bares evidence of use, and has retained a defined edge. The faces of the axe are defined by marks and fractures which vary in intensity. One face bears deeper scars than the other. The axe belongs to the Grou…
