Object type: BLADE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Cheshire West and Chester
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Mesolithic tertiary mottled dark-grey/green/black flint blade. Some patination at distal end. Pronounced bulb of percussion on the ventral surface suggests the flake was removed from the core by hard hammer. There has been flaking on the dorsal at the proximal end to reshape it. There is retouch to the entirity of both medial edges. The concave edge has two notches worked into it at the proximal end. There is also a degree of retouch on both the proximal & distal ends. Dates from c10000 to c4000 BC. Length is 40mm, width 24mm, height 8mm, & weight 5.69g.

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.

A lithic waste flake dating from the Mesolithic to the early Bronze Age, (8300-800BC). The object is a pointed oval in plan and triangular in cross-section. The object is made from a toffee brown flint. Flint waste such as this is difficult to date more precisely when found alone.

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. The flint belongs to…

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…

Object type: CORE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Cheshire West and Chester
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A flint core dating to the Prehistoric period, (8300-800BC). The object is sub-rectangular in plan and sub-triangular in cross-section. On the dorsal face three parallel blades have been removed. A large bulb of percussion on the ventral face indicates that the object was struck with a hard hammer. At the proximal end the striking platform measures 18.22mm in width and is 6.33mm thick. The distal end is smooth and rounded. On the right hand side of the flint (looking at the dorsal face) is a short length of short semi-abrupt retouch. Towards the distal end and along the left hand e…
