Record ID: SWYOR-B4C108
Object type: BLADE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Long worked flint blade dating to the Mesolithic period. The blade is mid-brown in colour and displays a double dorsal ridge. There is some fine retouch along the left dorsal edge. The left ventral edge also has some fine retouch in a localised area which has created a small semi-circular notch about a third of the way up the edge from the proximal end. The piece has been labelled by the finder and has a shiny fixative on the ventral face. The blade measures 60.1mm in length, 14.3mm in width and 6.86mm in thickness.

A small waste dominated lithic assemblage of five blades/flakes, found scattered over a field (approx 100m2). The blades/flakes appear to be at least partially incomplete, and the absence of patina on some edges suggests that some damage may be recent, possibly from ploughing. 1. Blade(?), incomplete, brown/grey flint, 0% cortex, light patina. Three scars on the dorsal face, length 23.1mm, width 12.0mm, thickness 6.6mm, mass 2.03g; 2. Blade, incomplete, brown/grey flint, 5% cortex, light to moderate patina on approximately 10% of the surface, length 23.7mm, width 15.2mm, thickness…

A collection of seven worked flints (collective weight: 54.96g), as listed below: 1. One core rejuvenation flake, dating from the Mesolithic – Neolithic period between c. 8000 – 2200 BC. The flake has numerous dorsal scars and is struck off and ‘rejuvenated’, therefore creating a fresh flaking bed on the core face, and prepares the core platform and face for further removals. 2. One core rejuvenation flake, dating from the Neolithic – Bronze Age period between c. 4000 – 2200 BC. As No. 1. 3. One piercer/ awl, dating to the Bronze Age between c. 2200 – 800 BC. A retouc…

Four flint debris or waste (microliths?) (lengths ranging from 23-33mm; collective weight: 4.32g). All of them have been struck once or twice on the dorsal to create one main arrise, including some evidence of re-touch on two of the artefacts. On the ventral side, the ripples or ‘lunettes’ or clearly visible illustrating the force of the impact. Probably dating to the Mesolithic period between 8000-4000 BC.

A knapped flint blade with retouch. Length 41.4mm; width: 27.1mm; thickness: 9.5mm; mass: 8.2g. The blade is broken at the distal end. The blade is partly coritical and dark grey and off white in colour. On the ventral face there is a bulb of percussion at the proximal end, with a small bulbar scar and ripples of the concoidal fracture running down the face. On the dorsal side there are multiple scars, and on one edge there is some invasive, retouch and a notch. It is unclear if the notch is an original feature or whether it represents damage. There are also some scars between t…

A knapped flint flake. Length 29.1mm; width: 18.5mm; thickness: 5.9mm; mass: 2.9g. The blade is non-cortical and grey in colour. The blade has convex sides which run from a narrow proximal end to the wider broken base at the distal end. On the ventral face of the scarred (?retouch) narrow proximal end there is a bulb of percussion, with pronounced ripples of the concoidal fracture below this. One edge of the blade has some small scars on both dorsal and ventral faces, creating a mildly serrated edge. The other edge is a scarred ridge with a slight notch in it. The blade is likely to b…
