  • 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…

A fragment of a copper alloy Roman finger ring, circa 1st to early 3rd century AD. The bezel is flat and oval, 15.3mm long by 12.4mm wide and contains what appears to be a melted remnant of a white metal inlay. The bezel sits flush to the shoulders, which are wide and undecorated aside from an incised line forming a border to the bezel. The surface of the ring is damaged and largely lost. The hoop, which has a plano convex cross section and an internal diameter of 18mm, has broken in antiquity just below each of the shoulders. Cf Guiraud type 2d.

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…

Silver finger ring fragment. Cast 'TOT' ring, comprising a round flat bezel which stands proud of a remaining sub-triangular shoulder with engrailed edges, and with a short [12mm] length of a narrower band projecting beyond it.

Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead weight. Cast discoid weight, flattened on part of its edge, whether deliberately is uncertain. The letter W or M, in a rectangular panel and preceded or followed by a thick bar, in apparently recent style made up of crisp overlapping Vs, has been stamped thrice upon one flat side; patinated. Weights of this value do not appear amongst those reported from the London waterfront (Egan 1998, table 15, fig. 229). The apparent modernity of the stamped lettering is also at odds with the simple form and patinated surface of the weight. Suggested date: possibly Post-Medieval, 1500-1800. D…
