The material used is local Wolds flint, appears to be an unfinished axe with some of the cortex still on the surface . Probably an impurity within the flint caused the artefact to break during manufacture.

Record ID: WMID-52AA34
Object type: WORKED OBJECT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A knapped flint of probable Neolithic date. The flint is sub-triangular in shape and resembles an arrowhead in shape. However, the flint has no invasive retouch and it retains the bulb of percussion and striking platform, a very unusual feature in Neolithic or Bronze Age arrowheads as the bulb of percussion is normally removed to facilitate hafting. The 'arrowhead' shape therefore seems likely to be coincidence rather than design. Very fine possible retouch resembling a saw blade may have been applied to both lateral edges, although it is possible that this has been caused during use …

County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A piece of chert, possibly worked. If it has been knapped from a core, it does not appear to have been retouched subsequently. The object does not have any of the clear hallmarks of human intervention - it does not have a clear bulb of percussion or striking platform. What appears at first to be retouch on the lateral edges may actually be natural damage and wear. The chert has a pale brown colour. Find not photographed.

County: Shropshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Five large fragments of un-worked flint. Probably either un-worked raw product or naturally occurring flint. These have been recorded for the sake of completeness as they were collected along with the other material from the Wem area and that flint only occurs in riverine and glacial deposits in Shropshire. This is part of a larger flint assemblage from the Wem area. See records:

A broken waste piece of near black Portland chert with tertiary cortex. It has been deliberately snapped from a longer tool with shallow retouch on the dorsal face. There is no use wear, which suggests that it was never used. There is no retouch on the ventral face.

  • Thumbnail image of SUSS-C44E13

Record ID: SUSS-C44E13
Object type: WASTE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: East Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A knapped flint waste flake dating to the Bronze Age, c. 2150-800 BC. The flake has a very large bulb of percussion and ripples on the ventral face; the dorsal face has three blade removals. There is a small area of possible retouch visible on the dorsal face, but the condition of the cherty flint makes the evaluation of this difficult and the extent of the possible retouch suggests that this flake was not used as a tool. It measures 59.5 mm long, 40.2 mm wide, 10.4 mm thick and weighs 25.61 grams.
