Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Dudley
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A prehistoric flint scraper of probable late Neolithic or early Bronze Age date, dating from circa 3000 BC to circa 1500 BC. The scraper has been made on a long flake and has been retouched from the dorsal side using pressure flaking. This retouch occurs on both edges and at the distal end. A ridge runs down the centre of the dorsal face, making the flint sub-triangular in section. It measures 43.95 mm long, 22.24 mm wide, 9.07 mm thick and weighs 10.3 grams. The flint is a dark to pale grey in colour.

Object type: FLAKE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Dudley
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint waste flake of prehistoric date, probably Neolithic or Bronze Age, and dating from circa 4500 BC - 1000 BC. The flake is cortical in small areas at the butt and the tip of the distal end, and it has no obvious shape for a tool. However, what appears to be deliberately fine retouch at the distal end may have enabled the flake to be used as a knife and this is a distinct possibility. It measures 50.06 mm long, 20.62 mm wide, 5.15 mm thick and weighs 6 grams. The flint is pale to dark grey in colour with small areas of cream cortex.

Object type: AXEHEAD ROUGHOUT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Dudley
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An unfinished roughout for a flint axehead, dating to the Neolithic period. The wedge shaped roughout has been bifacially flaked around its edges and some flaking has been undertaken further into the body of the flint. The butt is still very thick and the roughout seems to have been abandoned before this part of the axe was refined. Much cortex remains on both faces and on the butt and sides of the roughout. It is not immediately clear why the axehead was abandoned before it was finished, although as the butt is still very thick it may be that the desired shape for the axehead…

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Dudley
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A prehistoric, probably Neolithic, flint tool formed from a flake. There is retouch along both lateral edges and a notch has been taken out of the cortical distal end. This may have been a composite tool, with the left lateral edge appropriate for use as a cutting blade, and the blunter retouch on the right lateral edge, confined to the area around the distal end, used as a scraper. The retouch at the distal end may have functioned as a scoop, scraper or gauge. The flint is dark grey in colour and partly cortical. Other worked flint tools and a Neolithic ground axe have been recovered…

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Dudley
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A prehistoric, probably Neolithic, flint knife formed from a flake. The flake has been retouched along its proximal edge in order to blunt the edge and make it more comfortable to hold. The opposite, distal end has also been retouched, though here this was presumably to sharpen or serrate the edge for use as a cutting or sawing blade. The flint used is a cream to pale grey colour.

Object type: HAMMERSTONE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Dudley
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A prehistoric flint object, possibly a hammerstone for working other flint artefacts. There is an area of cortex on the top of the object, and many negative flake removal scars and evidence for percussion blows all over the rest of the flint. As many of the flake removals are very small, it is possible that this piece was used to knap and/or apply pressure to other flint tools during retouch of them. Other worked tools and a Neolithic ground axe have been recovered from the same area.

County: Dudley
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An irregular flint flake of possible Neolithic date, possibly a chopper. The tool appears to have had some retouch to make it more comfortable to hold, and there is slight retouch (or damage?) on what may be the chopping edge. Other worked flints and a Neolithic ground axe have been recovered from the same area. The flint is a pale to dark grey in colour with some cortex remaining.

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Dudley
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A prehistoric, probably Neolithic, flint tool quite possibly a knife. The tool is formed from a large flake. Percussion blows in the area around the bulb of percussion have clearly removed parts of the flake to make it more comfortable to hold, and an area of cortex appears to have been deliberately retained for this purpose. The piece has one sharp edge which has been subject to fine retouch from both dorsal and ventral sides. The flint is dark grey to pale grey in colour with small patches of cream cortex remaining.

County: Dudley
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A possible knife or some other tool formed from what may be obsidian, a naturally occuring volcanic glass. The identification of the material as obsidian is tentative as obsidian does not occur widely in Britain, and the material may instead by a form of chert, perhaps even flint. However, its dark, almost black, colour and glassy appearance are unusual. The piece has clearly been utilised as there are percussion marks in many places and the sharpest edge appears to have been finely retouched, perhaps allowing the tool to have been used as a cutting blade. Other worked flints …

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Dudley
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A stone axe dating from the Neolithic period. The axe has been ground from a fine grained igneous greenstone, probably from a volcanic ash deposit. The patina of the surface of the axe is a green/grey, whilst damage shows a dark grey interior. The surface of the axe is quite badly scuffed, chipped and scarred in places, probably a result of plough damage. The axe measures 305.55 mm long, and is 51.12 wide at its widest, tapering to 25 mm wide at the haft end. It is 32 mm thick at its thickest and weighs 29.07 grams. There are clear facets on either edge. The axehead would have been h…

Object type: BARBED AND TANGED ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Dudley
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Knapped flint barbed and tange arrowhead. Probably Late Neolithic to the Middle Bronze Age. Mass: 1.5g. Length: 26mm; extant width: 17mm. Thickness: 4mm. Grey patinated flint. Made on a re-used flake, as the surface is not patinated around the edges where it has been retouched. The tanged arrowhead appears to have lost some material from its tip, and also at the ends of the wings - and so the original form is unclear.

Object type: LEAF ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Dudley
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete knapped flint leaf arrowhead (length: 34.1mm; width: 21.9mm; thickness: 6.5mm; weight: 5.14g), dating to the early-late Neolithic period between c. 4000-2200 BC. The arrowhead has been extensively re-touched along the edges and has a rounded but flat base heading up to a point in a tear-drop shape. This example looks very similar to those classified as Types 1A & 2A in Green, 1980, pages 69-70. The arrowhead is in a good condition.
