Record ID: WMID-83AE73
Object type: LEAF ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Solihull
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete leaf arrowhead dating to the Neolithic period (c. 4000 - 2150 BC). The arrowhead is formed on a brownish-grey coloured tertiary flint flake; both the dorsal and ventral faces are extensively retouched around all edges. The arrowhead is lentoid or pointed oval in plan and lentoid in cross section. The butt of the arrowhead has been trimmed and extensively reworked removing any trace of the striking platform or bulb of percussion. The ripples of percussion can be made out on the ventral face. At least one ridge is visible on the dorsal face. The retouch on the ventral face is …

A small piece of flint, mid-grey, opaque, with some surviving cortex, perhaps a core, with signs for flaking on both faces Two of the edges bear traces of heavy battering leaving a hackly surface.

35 pieces of flint working debitage, probably Early Neolithic, c. 4,000-3,300BC, all made from the same, mid-grey, translucent flint. 19 pieces show tertiary flint working (second image) and 16 secondary flint working (first image) retaining some of the original cortex. The nature of this suggests the use of flint cobbles as raw material. The flints can be described as 'blade like flakes' which, with the use of a soft hammer, supports the Early Neolithic dating. Only one piece is recorticated, and possilby intrusive, the rest is clean and the assemblage appears homogeneous.

A complete flint Thumbnail Scraper of Neolithic date (3450-1500 BC). The lithic is sub-ovate in plan and bi-convex in section. The dorsal surface has invasive parallel flaking with the exception of the proximal end which has two hinged flake removals and a small amount of retained cortex in the mesal portion. All edges except the blunted proximal edge have some semi-abrupt retouch. The ventral surface is slightly convex and has covering scaled flaking. The lithic retains a minor amount of cortex and is therefore a secondary flake. The flint is dark grey in colour with some cream incl…

A Group A obliquely blunted point with a triangular shape. The point is made from a mottled grey tertiary flake. There is abrupt, sub-parallel, short retouch along the left mesal. A small flake has been removed from the point to make the tip even sharper. There is a large striking platform at the proximal end and a low bulb of percussion on the ventral face.

County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Neolithic to Early Bronze Age flint scraper dating to the period c. 4000 - 2351 BC. Tertiary flake, no cortex remains. The dorsal surface exhibits five sub-parallel flake scars. The ventral surface has a high bulb of percussion with tightly spaced conchoidal ripple marks and a bulbar scar. The distal end an both mesal edge exhibit some evidence of retouch, however, this has been largely removed or obscured by later edge damage.

Lithic implement, likely a scraper, of light grey flint. The item is roughly square shaped and trapezoidal in section. The ventral face features a prominent bulb of percussion, whilst the dorsal face shows flake removals across much of the surface. A removal along the distal edge (viewed dorsally) allow it to slop downward, ending in a sharp edge. There also appears to be a similar removal on the right edge, whilst the left side also slopes to a sharp edge. There appears to be some iron staining along parts of the arrises of the dorsal face. Dimensions: weight: 4.30g, length: 24.6mm,…
