Record ID: WMID-4C0064
Object type: LEAF ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Dudley
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete knapped flint leaf arrowhead (length: 34.1mm; width: 21.9mm; thickness: 6.5mm; weight: 5.14g), dating to the early-late Neolithic period between c. 4000-2200 BC. The arrowhead has been extensively re-touched along the edges and has a rounded but flat base heading up to a point in a tear-drop shape. This example looks very similar to those classified as Types 1A & 2A in Green, 1980, pages 69-70. The arrowhead is in a good condition.

Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Dudley
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A slightly incomplete and broken hollow-based arrowhead (length: 22.3mm; width: 19.4mm; thickness: 3.4mm; weight: 1.28g), probably dating between 2500-1400 BC. The arrowhead has been extensively knapped with areas of re-touch along the egdes. One of the barbs is slightly incomplete, but it is difficult to identify whether this is a recent break. Many of these arrowheads appear in Ireland and the distributional evidence suggests that some of those found in Britain were either imports from Ireland or local copies. Only one certain hollow-based arrowhead in an associated context occur…

A collection of twenty-six knapped possible microliths (some broken) with some re-touch, dating to the Mesolithic period between c. 8000 - c. 4000 BC (length ranging from 8-28mm; average thickness: 3.5mm; collective weight: 13.10g). Many of these microliths/ flakes have multiple arrises on the dorsal (upper face) side, with normally 1-4 arrises on each piece. There is some evidence of re-touch to either side of the length of some of these artefacts.

County: Dudley
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete knapped flint barbed and tanged arrowhead (length: 21.9mm; width: 16mm; thickness: 5mm; weight: 1.09g), dating to the Bronze Age between c2200-900 BC. The arrowhead has been extensively re-touched on the surface, particularly along the edges. The high density areas of barbed and tanged arrowheads are virtually identical to the earlier leaf arrowheads, including areas around Norfolk, the North East coast and around the south west and Oxfordshire. This arrowhead cannot be closely matched to those classified by Green (1980).

Record ID: WMID-5621F1
Object type: BLADE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Dudley
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A prehistoric flint broken blade of probable Mesolithic or Neolithic date. The flint is brown in colour with an area of cortex on the left side, just before the break. The bulb of percussion and striking platform are clearly visible on the ventral face at the proximal end of the flint. There is fine retouch, predominantly applied from the ventral face on the right edge of the flint. The fairly even patina of the flint suggests that the break is ancient rather than recent. The flint may have been used as a cutting blade. It probably ranges in date from 8300 to circa 3000 BC.

Object type: FLAKE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Dudley
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint waste flake of prehistoric date, probably Neolithic or Bronze Age, and dating from circa 4500 BC - 1000 BC. The flake is cortical in small areas at the butt and the tip of the distal end, and it has no obvious shape for a tool. However, what appears to be deliberately fine retouch at the distal end may have enabled the flake to be used as a knife and this is a distinct possibility. It measures 50.06 mm long, 20.62 mm wide, 5.15 mm thick and weighs 6 grams. The flint is pale to dark grey in colour with small areas of cream cortex.

A post-medieval to modern gunflint from a flint lock rifle dating to the 16th - 19th centuries. The gunflint is sub-square in plan and appears complete. The flint has been knapped around the edges in order to get the correct shape. The distal edge is thinner (2.6 mm) thickening to 10.21 mm before tapering off again. All of the edges are relatively straight. The flint used is a dark grey in colour.
