Record ID: WMID-5621F1
Object type: BLADE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Dudley
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A prehistoric flint broken blade of probable Mesolithic or Neolithic date. The flint is brown in colour with an area of cortex on the left side, just before the break. The bulb of percussion and striking platform are clearly visible on the ventral face at the proximal end of the flint. There is fine retouch, predominantly applied from the ventral face on the right edge of the flint. The fairly even patina of the flint suggests that the break is ancient rather than recent. The flint may have been used as a cutting blade. It probably ranges in date from 8300 to circa 3000 BC.

A collection of three knapped microburins, dating to the Mesolithic period between c. 8000 BC - c. 4000 BC (length ranging from 11-21mm; average thickness: 3mm; collective weight: 1.74g). A bulb of percussion and ripples or 'lunettes' are visible on the ventral (lower face) side of the largest piece. Multiple arrises are on all but one piece, with normally 2-4 arrises on the dorsal (upper face) side. In his 2004 publication 'Guide to the Identification, Assessment and Recording of Lithics October 2004, Version 1',page 209, C J Bond describes microburins as 'a by-product of the manuf…
