Record ID: LIN-FED751
Object type: PALSTAVE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: North East Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete copper alloy palstave fragment of Middle Bronze Age date (c. 1500-1200 BC). The fragment is approximately triangular in profile and rectangular in section. The blade end survives intact but has corroded surfaces with some encrustation and a mid-brown to green patina. The sides of the palstave taper inwards from the ends of the blade, before terminating in an old break. This fragment is probably from a palstave, although it could potentially be from the tip of a socketed axe head or a small chisel. Similar examples recorded on the PAS database include: SF-AE99A4 and PUB…

Object type: CORE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An uncertain bifacial worked uncertain lithic object, possibly a levallois core of uncertain date. Description: The object is roughly pear shaped, with a wider wide end. One side has an area of fine invasive scaled retouch reminiscent of levallois shaping but without any substantial method to it. This retouch is interrupted by a patch of cortex or fault. the other side has some flake insavive flake removals on the right side with a large removal again reminscant of levallois shaping leaving a large dish shape. The left side of this latter facing is heaving crushed indicating substanti…

Object type: BLADE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An irregularly shaped probable flint blade of Neolithic to Bronze Age date. Description: The object is irregularly shaped wiht a long thin blade and a wider square butt. It is formed from a secondary flake with some cortex still remaing at the butt end. The blade is formed from short abrupt retouch which produces shoulders with the butt. the back of the blade is formed by similar crushed short scaled abrupt retouch. All the object's rippling is produced from the hard hammer technique shwo by prominant conchoidal rippling and the ventral face's bulb of percussion. Measurements: 36.94m…

Object type: CORE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Two flint core chunks, both of probable later Bronze Age date, c. 1600-800 BC. The first is a tertiary flake, sub-trapezoidal in plan and triangular in cross section, and probably extensively damaged. It is of an opaque black-brown flint. The dorsal face is faceted, the right featuring no conchoidal ripples and possibly being natural, and with the right edge being damaged through abrasion. The left facet features two obliquely angled, sub-parallel negative removal scars, with the proximal end of the left edge also damaged. The proximal end is battered, resulting in a confused array of…

Object type: BURNT FLINT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Burnt flint. Two small fragments of flint bearing a thick creamy patina suggesting its prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment, and both crazed overall by heating. The smaller chip may have had flakes struck from its dorsal side; the larger does not appear to have been deliberately worked, though it may have incurred adventitious impacts. Suggested date: Unknown, Neolithic to Early Bronze Age, 4000-1600 BC. Combined Weight: 7.62gms

County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A chert core of probable Bronze Age date, c. AD 1600-800. A sub-tetrahedron shaped fragment of brown chert, with large and distinct areas of quartz-like inclusions and areas of a smooth, beige cortex remaining on one face. A series of sub-parallel removals have been struck from this face, through the cortex, leaving overhanging promonotories or lips at he interstice of each removal, suggesting a lack of platform preparation. Dimensions: length 58.4mm; width 55.3mm; thickness 55.8mm; weight 130.50g. Although sub-parallel removals may suggest an earlier date, their irregular size and l…

Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A retouched tertiary flake of mottled grey flint, probably dating to the later Bronze Age, c. 1600-800 BC. The flake is sub-triangular in plan, missing its striking platform, but with the suggestion of a large bulb of percussion. Three irregular, flake-like removal scars survive on the dorsal face, all struck from roughly the same direction and with one removal being significantly hinged. At the left edge of the proximal end of the ventral face there is short, low angle, stepped retouch, with short, semi-abrupt, scalar retouch at the right edge of the distal end of the same face. The d…

33 pieces of flint debitage and 1 flake of chert debitage of probable later Bronze Age date, c. 1600-800 BC. The group appears to represent a variety of flint sources, including some pebble flint fragments and comprises of 1 chert (7.43g) and 1 flint (31.25g) primary flake, 19 secondary flakes (350.49g) and 13 tertiary flakes (89.72g). In general the knapping is very crude, producing large, crude flakes with removals struck from several directions and exhibiting characteristics suggestive of hard-hammer percussion, suggesting a date range in the later Prehistoric period. Part of a larg…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint burin of probable later bronze age date, c. 1600-800 BC. A triangular tertiary flake of grey-brown flint, sub-trapezoidal in cross section and curving slightly ventrally into the distal end. A number of subparallel removal scars are present on the dorsal face, with one struck from a parallel platform to the others and overall fake removal. At the proximal end a striking platform and bulb of percussion survive with bulbar scar. Dimensions: length 36.4mm; width 16.3mm; thickness 6.6mm; weight 4.42g. Given its form, the flake would have been well suited as an engraving tool. By …

A large crude flint probable borer with scraping edges possibly dating from the Mesolithic to the Early Bronze Age c.9000-1000 BC. Description: The borer is roughly sub-triangular in plan, kinking to the right with a concave right side. The borer is also tirangular in cross-section with a pointed dorsal face. The bulb of percussion on the ventrla side is very subtle and the conchoidal rippling is very subtle. There is long scaled abrupt retouch on the right edge which changes to semi-abrupt as it curves round to the borer point. Similar retouch is present on the left side although it …

County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Three flakes of Chert debitage, of probable Later Neolithic or Bronze Age date. All three flakes are of a gritty, brown chert, with two being secondary, and the third tertiary. This latter flake has a single much more heavily patinated removal scar, suggesting the reuse of earlier material. All of the flakes exhibit relatively irregular flake-like removals, on one flake (tertiary) clearly struck from multiple directions. Although the nature of the chert ensures that the bulbs of percussion are relatively diffuse, where they survive there is no small 'lip' below the striking platform th…

Two flint flakes exhibiting limited retouch and probably dating to the later Neolithic or Bronze Age. Both flakes are incomplete, and tertiary. The first is of a mottled grey-brown flint, missing its distal end. A striking platform survives at the proximal end, with a diffuse bulb of percussion of the ventral face. A number of removal scars survive on the dorsal face, with removals from platforms both parallel and perpendicular to the overall flake removal.
