Two pieces, probably from the same small blue flint nodule. One a small flake waste removed from the lower part of the nodule with some cortex (piece 1), and another small flake with more cortex remaining on the back but with evidence of fine edge damage and smoothing on the flint interior edge probably from use (piece 2). Piece 1: 12mm in length, 12mm in width, 3.5mm thick, 0.55g Piece 2: 18mm in length, 13mm in width, 5mm thick, 1.50g Two pieces of flint which look like very rough waste, (piece 3 & 4) with evidence of small narrow flake scars having previously come from thi…

A lithic implement of prehistoric date. The object is triangular in plan and is a light creamy brown colour. Ron Cowell, Curator of Prehistoric Archaeology, Museum of Liverpool notes: Triangular piece of miscellaneous-type flint I haven't seen much of in the region. There is some possible working around the thinner butt end, with a vertical break on the reverse side removing where the bulb of percussion may have been. There are some longitudinal fine scars along the right hand side, although difficult to tell whether these were put on before the piece was removed from the nodule or…

A grey flint, possibly a naturally created blank but with signs of surface working at one edge, perhaps to aid holding or even hafting, and retouch and damage along the longer continuous edge. The object is sub-oval in plan and sub-triangular in cross section. The retouch along the long edge is short, sub-parallel and semi-abrupt. Dimensions: 30mm in length, 11mm in width, 11mm thick, 4.60g Ron Cowell, Curator of Prehistoric Archaeology, Museum of Liverpool notes: This suggests a cutting type tool which would fit most easily into the following technology.

Object type: GUNFLINT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Cheshire West and Chester
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A post-medieval/modern gun-flint from a flintlock musket. The flint is rectangular in plan and cross-section with sloping edges to give it a trapezoidal side view. The flint is mid-grey in colour. The flintlock was introduced in the middle of the 16th century but it was not until the reign of William III that the flintlock became the main regulation firearm for the British Army. The knapped flint was used within the musket mechanism to produce a spark and would last between 20-25 shots before it had to be replaced, ' Clive Bond, 0.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Complete flint blade of probable later Mesolithic date (6500BC - 3500BC). The flint tool is broadly sub-rectangular in plan and cross section. It is much thicker than most blades and the two long edges taper to a blunted point. The bulb of percussion is lost. The two long sides and the lower end of the blade have been retouched / reworked. The retouch is extensive on both long edges where both pressure and direct knapping have been used. The tip is sharpened with retouch in two directions and the butt end is also trimmed with small shallow flakes being removed. A slight notch is …

Flint implement dating from the Mesolithic to the Neolithic period, (8300BC-2100BC). The object is sub-oval in plan and D-shaped in cross section. On one face of the object the cortex remains. The opposite face is covered in irregular facets. The pebble has been split in two, the force of which has probably caused the irregular breaks. It is however possible that the object was also utilised as a tool. The object is toffee brown in colour.
