County: North East Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Grey flint of good quality scraper. Angular lump with broad flakes removed by angled hard hammer strike from the dorsal side and a bulb on the ventral. Very short abrupt retouch follows one straight edge. An originally sharp aris between facets of the dorsal side has been ground or battered to afford a more comfortable grip. The lack of patina may suggest this was incorporated into a sealed context shortly after its manufacture. Suggested date: Bronze Age, 2350-800 BC. Length: 30.8mm, Width: 32.9mm, Thickness: 12.3mm, Weight: 11.14gms.

Grey flint with cortex, with white misty patina patches on ventral surface only, scraper. Sub-triangular flake with broad angled hard hammer flake removal scars on its dorsal side and a bulb on the ventral. Short angled scalar retouch follows the curved edge. The lack of patina on the dorsal side may suggest a previously struck flake was reused after a modest period of exposure, and that the scraper was itself deposited into a sealed context a shorter period after its manufacture. The Bronze Age could accommodate both episodes. Suggested date: Bronze Age, 2350-800 BC. Length: 43.5m…

Object type: DAGGER
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Grey flint dagger fragment. Ogival pointed end from a bifacially worked dagger of lentoid section. Both sides have angled covering scalar retouch, the finished effect being fairly smooth on one side but distinctly uneven on the other. An angled break is probably recent, and reveals a thick patina which suggests the object had endured prolonged exposure. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Length: 46.9mm, Width: 27.2mm, Thickness: 8.5mm, Weight: 8.75gms.
