Grey flint with cortex, possibly collected from the East Coast, possible plano-convex knife. Oval flake with invasive angled retouch executed from the dorsal aspect following both its curved edges and with a bulb on the ventral side. Misty patina on struck surfaces may suggest the object lay exposed to weathering for a period after its deposition. Suggested date: early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC.

Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Grey flint debitage. Flake with two broad flakes removed from its dorsal side, and with a hinge fracture at one end. The appearance of retouch is misleading, as impacts have occurred against rather than towards the edges. Some limited retouch may exist at one end, executed from the ventral aspect. A lack of patina may suggest this object was incorporated into a sealed deposit shortly after its deposition. Suggested date: Bronze Age, 2350-800 BC. Length: 42.9mm, Width: 21.5mm, Thickness: 7.8mm, Weight: 7.50gms.

Object type: CORE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Opaque grey flint with cortex core. The finder kindly suggests this to be a discoidal core of late Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date, citing Butler, C. (2012), Prehistoric Flintwork, page 156, plate 65 no. 7. Large flakes are removed from both sides by multi-directional angled hard hammer strike. The lack of patina may suggest this object was incorporated into a sealed context soon after its deposition. In view of the mediocre quality both of the material and its working, this reporter would prefer to assign a broad Bronze Age date, while admitting the earlier part of that period may …

Dark grey-blue flint with veinous patches of patina scraper fragment. A single broad flake was struck from the dorsal side, followed by short abrupt retouch following a curved edge; the object may have broken during this operation. The ventral surface is rough, probably the result of natural flaws rather than utilisation. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Length: 29.4mm, Width: 25.1mm, Thickness: 10.8mm, Weight: 6.80gms.

Grey buff flint of good quality scraper. Oval flake with broad flakes removed from its dorsal side and with a prominent bulb on the ventral. Invasive angled retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows the curved edge. The lack of patina may suggest this object was incorporated in a sealed deposit shortly after its deposition.

Grey flint with rippled banding and a small patch of naturally occurring crystals at one end and cloudy white patina overall, knife. Leaf shaped flake with broad flakes removed from its dorsal side and a prominent bulb on the ventral. Short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows its edges. The selection of this stone may have been influenced by its decorative properties, and the extent of patina suggests it endured a period of weathering after deposition. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC. Length: 36.0mm, Width: 19.7mm, Thickness: 5.9mm, Weight: 4.75gms

Grey flint with cortex scraper. The finder kindly suggests this to be a Neolithic end scraper, citing Butler, C. (2012), Prehistoric Flintwork, page 127 fig. 51 no. 5, and also nos 4-12. This reporter, considering the mediocre quality of the material and its initial working, would prefer an Early Bronze Age date. A broad flake has been removed from the dorsal side by hard hammer strike. A pair of narrow parallel flakes were removed from the dorsal side towards its base (as illustrated), possibly to trim an inconveniently sharp aris between flakes. Short abrupt retouch executed from the…

Object type: MULLER
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fine-grained granite elvan or rhyolite muller or rubbing stone. The muller is sub-oval in plan and trapezoidal in profile and section. Both faces of the muller, which are not parallel, are flat and smooth as they were used for rubbing. One side may have originally been convex so that it could be held and pushed across a base for grinding. The muller would have been used with a larger saddle quern to grind grain between the stones to make flour. Rhyolite is a silica-rich igenous rock and usually contains feldspar and quartz crystals and is therefore similar to elvan in its composition (…
