Record ID: WMID-837197
Object type: BARBED AND TANGED ARROWHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint barbed and tanged arrowhead (length: 38mm; width: 29mm; thickness: 4mm; weight: 3.67g). A finely knapped artefact (particularly along the edges) forming a sharply pointed tip as well as particularly square barbs and the base of the arrowhead is convex in plan. The barbs are slightly shorter than the tang and angle upwards to the right on the outside edge. This arrowhead has clear parallels with those of the Conygar Hill types which are present through-out Britain (Stephen Green, 1980, pages 117, 123 & 127, figs 46 & 50). The barbed and tanged arrowheads are largely date…

Object type: THUMB NAIL SCRAPER
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Staffordshire
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. There is a small patch of cortex on the dorsal face and a V shaped butt area where the original flake was struck off the core. 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 surface. The scraper weighs 3.57g and measures 23.4mm in length, 19.4mm in width and 7.78mm in thickness.

Object type: LEAF ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete knapped or flaked flint leaf shaped arrowhead, of Neolithic dating (c. 3500 BC to c. 2500 BC). The arrowhead is approximately 95% complete, missing a small fragment from the bottom. The arrowhead is leaf shaped in plan, consisting of a pointed oval shape.. It has been made from a piece of tertiary debitage as no cortex (outer rind) is visible on either the dorsal (upper) and ventral (lower) faces. Both dorsal and ventral face exhibit controlled flaking. The ventral face just has the retouch along the edge, whereas on the dorsal face, it covers the surface. The retouch ca…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete flint hollow scraper, of probable Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age dating (3300 BC to 1000 BC). The scraper is irregular in shape, with a triangular cross section. It consists of a wider end, which then narrows to a thinner square end. A deliberate circular notch has been taken out of one side, with abrupt, short, acute retouch around it and along the edge below it. A small amount of cortex is present at the wide end. It measures 40.7 mm in length, a maximum width of 15.3 mm and 6.1 mm thick. It weighs 3.2 g. The flint is a mid to dark grey colour, with little surfac…

A complete knapped lithic implement of probable Neolithic date (c. 4000 - 2000 BC). The implement is a scraper formed from a tertiary flake. The flake is dark grey in colour, sub-oval in plan and lozenge-shaped in section. There is a large striking platform at the proximal end on the ventral face, though the bulb of percussion has been obscured by retouch. The ripples of percussion can be seen above the retouch. The retouch on the ventral face is long, scaled and low-angled. The dorsal face has several prominent ridges. There is retouch along the right hand side to form the scraper edg…

A complete flint scraper and borer of Mesolithic date (c. 9000-3450 BC). The lithic is sub-rectangular in plan and concavo-convex in section. The dorsal surface contains three predominant negative scars with corresponding arrises. The left hand side of the dorsal surface contains a small number of short, parallel removals done at a semi-abrupt angle. The distal end appears to have been abruptly blunted with a worked point for boring. There is also some retouch below the borer with the removals also short, parallel and done at a semi-abrupt angle. The ventral surface is convex with ripp…

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Neolithic (Early) to Neolithic (Late) disc scraper, 33mm long, 33mm wide, 5mm thick and 9.3g in weight. Made on a rounded flake that has been worked centripetally into a disc by the application of semi-abrupt and in some parts abrupt retouch. The flint is opaque and has turned light grey through the process of patination. The butt is large and therefore the piece has been hard hammer struck. The left side has been notched, and the dorsal face possesses two parallel ridges created by unidirectional removals.

County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete knapped lithic implement of the late Neolithic to early Bronze Age period, probably dating from c. 2400 BC - c. 1600 BC. The object is probably a secondary flake removed from a larger core, and then subjected to further working, and was probably used as a scraper tool. The object is broadly D shaped in plan and broadly triangular in section. On the ventral face the striking platform is evident at the base of the proximal end, there is a small bulb of percussion and shallow, but clear, conchoidal ripple marks on the surface, suggestive of the use of a soft hammer when strik…

A complete flint, Late Neolithic - Early Bronze Age, tanged arrowhead, 2350-1700BC. The object comprises a pointed oval blade that has been pressure flaked to shape. There are long, scaled, intrusive removals across the surface of the object to shape the piece. The cutting edges are then retouched by short, scaled removals. The piece has an assymetrical lozenge shaped cross section, with one face more triangular than the other. See also NMS-C33616 a Green, S. (1980) Sutton type A.

A knapped flint end scraper with a re-touched edge localised to the distal edge, dating to the Neolithic period (length: 27.7mm; width: 30.3mm; thickness: 10mm; weight: 8.67g).

Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Mesolithic to Neolithic (-8300 to -2100) debitage: The knapped flint flake is probably either a core rejuvenation flake or sharpening flake. It is knapped from a mottled mid grey to light grey flint which has a waxy texture. One edge has re-touch on the dorsal surface which also has flake scars. The edges are otherwise unmodified. The ventral surface has a single scar, and recent damage. It weighs 7.25g and measures 35.94mm long, 28.09mm wide and 7.91mm thick. The flake probably dates to the Mesolithic to Neolithic period.

A knapped flint core formed into a rod like implement, dating to late Neolithic (c. 3300BC-2200 BC). The object is of uncertain function. The flake is lentoid in plan, and oval in cross section.

An incomplete struck / knapped blade, formed from a secondary debitage flake, of probable Neolithic dating (c. 4,000 BC to c. 2, 350 BC). The probable blade has a sub trapezoidal cross section, and is sub rectangular in shape. Retouch is present along the lower short side (short, subparallel, abrupt). The probable blade has been made from a piece of secondary debitage, probably the remains of a core for making blade. The flake has been made from a dark grey flint, with little surface patination.

An incomplete knapped or flaked flint leaf shaped arrowhead, of Neolithic dating (c. 3500 BC to c. 2500 BC). The arrowhead is approximately 95% complete, missing a small semi circular flake from one side. The arrowhead is leaf shaped in plan, consisting of a pointed oval shape with a semi circular base. It has been made from a piece of secondary debitage as a small amount of cortex (outer rind) is still present on dorsal (upper) face. Both dorsal and ventral (lower) face exhibit a large amount of controlled flaking, with retouch present along the edges. It measures 36.51 mm in l…

Object type: BLADE

County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete retouched tertiary flint blade of later Mesolithic date, circa 4500-3000 BC. The implement is a blade formed from a tertiary flake which has a D-shaped section. The blade has snapped at the proximal end, therefore the bulb of percussion is lost although the conchoidal ripples are visible. A number of small parallel flakes have been removed from the dorsal face. The retouch on the implement is short, parallel, low angled and is present along the left edge towards the distal end. It is likely that this blade was retouched around the long edges to be used as a scraping a…
