  • Thumbnail image of WAW-505403

Record ID: WAW-505403
Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Worcestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A probable Palaeolithic to Neolithic (400,000 to 2200 BC) debitage: flake. The flake has been removed from a larger implement/core which had a heavily patinated, and is a mottled bright brown-orange surface due to iron staining. A trace of this patination is visible along a lateral edge. The dorsal and ventral surfaces are only slightly patinated with a mottled yellow-brown colour, suggesting it has been produced through re-use. The ventral surface has a bulb of percussion with feint conchoidal ripples. The dorsal surface has a large negative scar. The flake measures 27.79mm length, 4…

Record ID: WAW-9019BA
Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Worcestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A probable Palaeolithic (500,000 to 24,000 BC) implement: possibly a crude handaxe. The implement is knapped from a chert like flint and where it is not damaged, the surface is heavily patinated, and is a mottled bright brown-orange due to iron staining. The damage reveals a light beige, matte surface. The implements' overall original shape is difficult to determine due to more recent damage on both faces at the edge, but it is now a sub-oval, and is a sub-lozenge in the horizontal section. One face has a patch of unworked surface which looks abraded and is the original surface. Th…

  • Thumbnail image of WAW-0798B7

Record ID: WAW-0798B7
Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Worcestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A possible knapped flint Palaeolithic tool or flake. The fragment is knapped from flint which is a mottled light grey/cream colour, but where there is the original surface remaining it has developed a heavy patination, which is a age/brown colour. Only a fragment of the object has this heavy patination, but it is these areas which appear to be negative flake scars. On both scars ripples of percussion are visible. Otherwise the surfaces of the object are caused by recent damage. It weighs 14.15g. The patination, shape of the flake scars and ripples of percussion suggest this was knappe…

  • Thumbnail image of WAW-148C02

Record ID: WAW-148C02
Object type: CORE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Warwickshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Face A of WAW-148C02 preserves evidence of 5 previous flake removals, the flake scars. These removals are generally indicative of centripedal flaking patterns, with the core rotating through the hands of the knapper. The scars of these flakes show broadly similar magnitude of damage e.g. abrasion of ridges between flake scars. This face of WAW-148C02 shows extensive ‘battering’ damage, in the form of a great number of incipient cones of percussion – the small marks that develop on flint as it impacts with other lithic materials, such as those shown within the dotted rectangl…
