Flint debitage. A long flake with long narrow parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a concave ventral surface with a small bulb at one end. A dense creamy patina suggest the object was subsequently exposed to a calcareous environment.

County: North Lincolnshire

Flint debitage fragments. Two small narrow flakes, each with long narrow parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side, and with a flat ventral surface; broken at either end. A dense white patina suggests they were subsequently exposed to a calcareous environment. As this patina extends over the surfaces at the broken ends of both objects, they probably sustained this damage in antiquity. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC Combined Weight: 1.72gms

42 complete and snapped flint blades or bladlets of later Mesolithic date (6000BC - 3500BC). These blades are struck from a core and have the generic crested appearance on their dorsal faces. Many of the blades have been deliberately snapped through the removal of side notches and deliberate breaking. The underside / ventral face of each shows conchoidal rippling and some have evidence of bulb of percussion and / or striking platforms. None of teh blades have been retouched. The colour of the flint varies between light grey - dark black and some have a mily white coloured surface patin…

County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment originating from a knapped flint tranchet adze of probable Mesolithic date, c. 6000-4000 BC. The fragment consists the butt end of the adze, broken around a quarter of the way down the original object in an old, patinated oblique hinge fracture. The fragment is broadly semi-circular in plan, with a flattened underside and prominent dorsal arrise on its upper face-giving it an overall triangular section. Almost the entirety of the original support surface has been removed by secondary working, which takes the form of highly invasive bifacial removals-probably detached via mea…

Tertiary, soft hammer struck blade, of unpatinated pale grey mottled flint, bulb of percussion is removed, possibly at the time of striking, it does not appear retouched, the central flake scar to the dorsal face towards the distal end is struck from an opposed platform to the rest of the flake scars, possibly indicating a Mesolithic date. Both lateral edges are irregularly damaged, it is unclear if this damage is recent or ancient.

A complete flint Core of Mesolithic date (9000-3450 BC). The lithic is sub-triangular in plan and bi-convex in section and tapers to a slight point at the proximal end. The dorsal and ventral surfaces have multiple negative scars, probably from blade removal and one hinged flake removal. The lithic retains cortex along one edge. There is a flat, single striking platform on the opposing end from the tapering end. The lithic retains some cortex and is therefore a secondary flake. The flint is grey in colour with cream inclusions throughout. The cortex is a light brown in colour. Length…
