  • Thumbnail image of LIN-FED751

Record ID: LIN-FED751
Object type: PALSTAVE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: North East Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
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…

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…

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…

A flint core of probable Bronze Age date, c. AD 1600-800. A sub-conical fragment of chert-like grey flint mottled with regular inclusions, and with a small area of thin, compact, beige-pink cortex below the striking platform. The core has two largely unworked facets, with a series of irregularly sized sub-parallel removals from the the third. A promonotory projects from between each removal, suggesting a lack of platform preparation. Dimensions: length 40.8mm; width 42.6mm; thickness 38.9mm; weight 40.33g.

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…

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 flake 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…

County: Devon
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Late Neolithic to Bronze Age crude flint scraper, probably dating to c. 3000-1600 BC. The tool has been worked from a tertiary flake of dark brown-grey flint. The flake has been worked down considerably, with the bulb of percussion taking up the entirety of the ventral face. The striking platform potentially survives at the proximal end (this is not wholly clear), and there are no prominent conchoidal ripple marks. The distal end and right edge of the dorsal face have been retouched with invasive, semi-abrupt, stepped retouch, and with this, in addition to one removal scar on the dor…

A Late Neolithic to Bronze Age crude flint scraper, probably dating to c. 3000-1600 BC. The tool has been worked from a tertiary flake of dark blue-grey flint. The ventral face exhibits slightly pronounced conchoidal ripples, but with the bulb of percussion and striking platform both worked away. The flake has been crudely retouched along both edges and the distal end of the dorsal face. The proximal left edge of the dorsal face exhibits irreular, low angle, and long/invasive retouch, with the retouch along the distal end and right edge being short/long, abrupt and sub-parallel/scalar.…

A retouched flint flake of probable later Bronze age date, dating to c. 1600-800 BC. A tertiary flake of mottled beige flint, incomplete and missing its right edge to a natural break.

A Late Neolithic to Bronze Age crude flint scraper, probably dating to c. 3000-1600 BC. The tool has been produced from a tertiary flake of partially translucent mottled grey-brown flint. The flake is incomplete, comprising of the distal end only, with the proximal end lost, but with hackles present on the right side of the ventral face. Four negative removal scars survive on the dorsal face, irregular in size, and with relatively prominent conchoidal ripples where clear, with these struck from the same direction as the overall removal.

A probable late Bronze Age flint scraper, probably dating to c. 1,600-800 BC. An incomplete secondary flake of mottled beige flint, with a small area of cortex retained on the right mesal edge of the dorsal face. The distal end has been lost to a natural break, and the proximal end worked away. Two subparallel negative removal scars survive on the dorsal face, one relatively broad. At the distal end of the right edge of the dorsal face, is a small srea of short, abrupt stepped retouch.

A Late Neolithic to Bronze Age crude flint scraper, probably dating to c. 3000-1600 BC. The tool consists of a primary flake of mottled dark grey flint, with cortex covering c. 90% of the dorsal face. The flake appears to have been struck directly through the cortex, with a small removal scar on the dorsal face, originating from the same striking point. Both have relatively pronounced conchoidal ripples. Short, scalar retouch is present at the distal end of both faces, semi-abrupt and curving along the entire end on the dorsal face, lower angle and slightly neater on the ventral face, …

Four pieces of flint debitage, probably dating to the Late Neolithic or Early Bronze Age. The assemblage can be divided into two groups: the first group contains a single secondary flake of translucent dark brown-grey flint, with sandy cortex covering c. 20% of the dorsal face, at the distal end. The striking platform survives at the proximal end, with a relatively diffuse bulb of percussion, although exhibiting a bulbar scar. Two sub-parallel removal scars are present on the dorsal face, struck from opposing directions. The second group consists of three tertiary flakes: two of a simi…

Plano-convex knife, of sub-rectangular plan form, finely, and invasively pressure flaked from a secondary, hard hammer struck blade-like flake of good quality mottled grey flint, now patinated slightly by iron oxides, most noticeably to one lateral edge near the middle. The opposing edge has the distal end of a previously struck, hinge terminated flake that was present in the dorsal surface before the blade-like flake was struck, and this has been modified into a small notch by steep, non-invasive retouch to the ventral face. The bulb of percussion has been removed to form a chisel-lik…
