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 …

Object type: WORKED OBJECT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
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.

Object type: TRANSVERSE ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A transverse arrowhead, probably of petit tranchet type (length: 20mm; width: 18mm; thickness: 6mm; weight: 2.02g). The narrower end is what the shaft would have been connected. There has been extensively knapping on all three sides apart from the narrow end to create a sharp edge. There are three principal types defined as transverse arrowheads defined by typological analysis. These are the petit tranchet, chisel and oblique types. It is uncertain when petit tranchets were first manufactured in Britain. Some may perhaps date to the Mesolithic period, but most of the Mesolithic site…

Object type: TRANSVERSE ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A probable transverse arrowhead of grey-green translucent flint. Late Neolithic dating (3300 BC to 2200 BC). The arrowhead is triangular in shape, with a sub-rectangular cross section. Conchoidal ripples are present on the ventral face. Retouch is present along both side edges, on both faces. The retouch can be classified as short, sub-parallel and abrupt. The arrowhead measures 31.5 mm in length with a maximum width of 22.7 mm. It is 6.1 mm thick and weighs 3.5 g.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete knapped flint thumbnail scraper, formed on a flake, dating to the late Neolithic – Early Bronze Age, between 3000 – 1800 BC (length: 23mm; width: 20mm; thickness: 5.5mm; weight: 3.2g). On the ventral side of the scraper, there is a bulb of percussion with an eraillure scar and ripples or ‘lunettes’ radiating down and outwards from the feature. On the dorsal side, there are three main arrises with retouched edges to the left and top of the artefact. The retouched edge on thumbnail scrapers tends to be around the circumference, o near total edge, of the flake blank.…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint thumbnail scraper made from a flake and dating to the late Neolithic - Early Bronze Age. The scraper is sub-oval in shape with a finely retouched curved edge on the dorsal face. About a third of the edge in unworked - this is the butt area where the original flake was struck off the core. The dorsal surface is mostly covered in dark honey coloured cortex apart from on the retouched edges. The angle of retouch is about 45 degrees. The ventral surface has a pronounced bulb of percussion with ripples radiating from this point across the surface. There is no retouch on the ventral su…

Object type: SICKLE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete bifacially worked fragment of a flint Sickle of Neolithic dating (circa 4000 BC - 2351 BC). The fragment is broadly sub-triangular in shape, and broadly lentoid (lozenge) shaped in cross section. The fragment comes from towards the tip of the sickle, however the actual tip and the base are now missing. The flint is white and grey in colour with the tip in a brown colour. The fragment has a bowed curved edge. Both the ventral and dorsal faces of the flake have been reworked. This secondary reworking is best seen on the curved edge where detailed neat small flakes have…

Late Neolithic/Early Bronze Age scraper made from shiny dark brown flint which is not much patinated. Not much of the platform remains and the left edge of the dorsal face has been chipped as a number of smaller bulbs of percussion and ripple marks indicate.

County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint scraper dating from the late Neolithic - Early Bronze Age. The scraper is semi-circular in shape with a finely retouched section of curved edge on the dorsal face. The scraper appears to have been broken so that part is missing – this may be plough damage. There is a patch of cortex on the dorsal face at the butt. The ventral surface shows the bulb of percussion with ripples radiating from this point across the surface. There is no retouch on the ventral surface. The scraper weighs 3.87g and measures 24.9mm in length, 15.7mm in width and 9.3mm in thickness.

Flint tool, probably a scraper, dating from the late Neolithic to the Early Bronze Age. The tool is sub-oval in shape with one curved retouched edge. The tool appears to be bifacially worked although this may be simply a result of wear. The tool weighs 5.4g and measures 28.9mm in length, 19.8mm in width and 9.4mm in thickness.

A largely complete disc scraper, fabricated from a broad, squat flint flake, probably from the later neolithic or early bronze age. In plan the scraper is broadly circular, with a flat striking platform at the proximal end. In profile, the scraper has two convex sides which meet at the distal end, with the flat striking platform at the proximal end. The convex ventral face is formed by a bulb of percussion with a bulbar scar at the proximal end, and gentle ripples of the conchoidal fracture visible towards the distal end. There are some fractures on the perimeter of the ventral face, b…

An incomplete knapped flint probable circular scraper, dating to the Neolithic period, between 4000 – 200 BC (diameter: 33mm; thickness: 5.5mm; weight: 4.7g). There is retouch on both sides of the scraper, which is particularly evident on one side where the retouch runs around its circumference. The artefact has been broken across the centre. The flint is dark brown/ grey in colour. According to Bond, C, J, 2004 ‘Guide to the Identification, Assessment and Recording of Lithics, Version 1’, page 206, a scraper is ‘a retouched form that retains an edge, by retouching to an a…

The retouched edge appears around the circumference of the artefact, with large and more extensive retouched areas down one side in particular. The form of circular scrapers is found across a broader date r…
