Record ID: SWYOR-F2FC71
Object type: BLADE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Sheffield
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint blade, possibly dating to the Mesolithic period. The blade is leaf shaped with a flat tip at the distal end. The tip appears to have some very fine working as does the top left upper face edge and bottom right edge. The lower face has no retouch but there is a pronounced bulb of percussion at the proximal end.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Late Neolithic flint scraper worked from a flake. The scraper has been worked around the full edge of the upper face. The lower face has no retouch but the bulb of percussion (where the original flake was struck from the core) is clearly visible at the butt.

Object type: MICROLITH
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Sheffield
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A late Mesolithic flint point. This example seems abnormally long and contains fine retouch on both the dorsal and ventral face, along the lateral and also the distal (point) end, where a notch has been taken out to create the sharper end. This microlith is strange also due to the presence of cortex on the left lateral edge. It measures 59.3mm x 13.4mm x 4.5mm, weighing 5.02g. For example, see Butler 2005, Fig. 37-1.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint retouched blade or possible knife. This microlith tool is Mesolithic and has fine retouch on both lateral edges, on both dorsal and ventral.

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Sheffield
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Neolithic flint tool; an end and side scraper, which appears to have been manufactured on a rounded flake. The scraper is 35.6mm long and 30.3mm wide. It is a primary flake, with cortex covering c70% of the dorsal side. The cortex is pale grey; otherwise, the flint is dark grey, with a white band in the distal part. The platform is also bright white, and the area above the bulb on the ventral side is paler grey with orange flecks. Almost the entire perimeter of the dorsal side has been invasively retouched. On the ventral side, the bulb scars are faint. The platform is an irregular l…

A flint core of Early Mesolithic date, about 9000 BC - 8000 BC. It is formed on a nodule of dark grey (East Coast?) flint with cortex surviving on one face and on part of the narrower end. It is a cylindrical core with a D-shaped straiking platform, broad blade removals on 75% of the sides, and tapering to a point at the end opposite the striking platform. The removals are parallel and uni-directional. It is 61.5mm long, 36mm wide and 25.7mm thick. 74.53g.

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Sheffield
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint barbed and tanged arrowhead dating from the Late Neolithic or Bronze Age period, about 2400 BC - 1000 BC. It is formed on a tertiary flake of mottled grey flint and is not patinated. It has invasive, scaled, low angle retouch on both faces. Both barbs appear to be complete, but one is shorter than the other. The long one has a rounded end, and the short one a pointed end. The tang is wide and has a gently curved base. The arrowhead is 33.2mm long, 24mm wide and 6mm thick. 3.44g.

Flint retouched blade of Mesolithic to Neolithic date (9000 - 2200 BC). The flint is opaque, light grey with large white inclusions and is a tertiary flake. It is sub-rectangular in plan and sub-trapezoid in section. The distal end is oblique and pointed. The point at the left side of the distal end is shaped with short, semi-abrupt, parallel retouch from the dorsal face, and scalar, long, low-angle retouch from the ventral face. There are also some removals from both faces on the left edge, and fewer on the right edge. These are short, sub-parallel and semi-abrupt. The flint is 41.6m…

A flint blade with a light grey hue. The blade is thin and broad with lateral strips knapped off. There is evidence of retouch, possibly down both lateral edges on the dorsal face. The object is twice as long as it is wide, classing it as a blade. It measures 34.4mm x 17.2mm x 3.3mm, weighing 2.28g. The broad size makes this either Mesolithic or early Neolithic.

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Sheffield
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint scraper dating from the Late Neolithic to the Early Bronze Age (2500-1500 BC). This scraper is sub square and has cortex on one side. The distal end might be a small striking platform and the right edge at the distal end shows retouch off the cortex and is the scraping end. It also has further retouch on the side to the left of the distal end but this is not denticulate as the retouch is too small. It has retouch around the sides which is abrupt and semi-abrupt. The scraper is an opaque brown with an outer cortex that is a creamy orange with a white edge. Length: 25.3mm; Width:…

Record ID: SWYOR-C4F833
Object type: CORE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Sheffield
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint fragment of a core. It is probably a two-platform core, with knapping on the dorsal side but not the ventral. The flint has a small piece of cortex remaining on the proximal edge. It measures 20.4mm x 19.2mm x 6.9mm, weighing 3.69g. This crude core flake seems to have been discarded after only a few knaps. This is typical of the later Neolithic to early Bronze Age when, generally speaking, less care was taken with the raw material.

A flint tool, a knife, probably dating from the late Neolithic. The knife is 48.3mm long, 15.1mm wide and 4.6mm thick. It is formed on a tertiary flake which is rounded at both ends. Both edges are retouched, but they are also extensively damaged. It is similar to a plano-convex knife on page 171 of “Prehistoric Flintwork” by Chris Butler (2005), but is less invasively worked. The flint is an opaque and patinated brownish grey colour.
