Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Late Neolithic/Early Bronze Age scraper made from shiny dark brown flint which is not much patinated. Not much of the platform remains and the left edge of the dorsal face has been chipped as a number of smaller bulbs of percussion and ripple marks indicate.

Object type: END SCRAPER
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint end scraper dating from the Neolithic – Early Bronze Age. The flint is pale-mid grey with a small patch of cortex at the butt where it has been struck from the core. The tool is roughly tear shaped; the wide rounded end is finely worked into a scraping tool on the dorsal face. There is some further retouch down the left and right dorsal edges but this does not appear to be for use as a scraping edge. The scraper weighs 7.66g and measures 40.41mm in length, 23mm in width and 7.88mm in thickness.

Object type: END SCRAPER
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint end scraper dating to the Neolithic – Early Bronze Age. The flint is honey coloured with a small patch of cortex at the distal end of the ventral face. The tool is roughly oval in shape; unusually, the curved proximal end (as opposed to the distal end) of the dorsal surface bears the fine retouch forming the scraping edge. The ventral face has a bulb of percussion at the proximal end and terminates in a hinge fracture at the distal end. The scraper weighs 4.26g and measures 27.03mm in length, 20.19mm in width and 8.36mm in thickness.

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.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint scraper dating from the late Neolithic - Early Bronze Age. The scraper is semi-circular in shape with a finely retouched section of curved edge on the dorsal face. The scraper appears to have been broken so that part is missing – this may be plough damage. There is a patch of cortex on the dorsal face at the butt. The ventral surface shows the bulb of percussion with ripples radiating from this point across the surface. There is no retouch on the ventral surface. The scraper weighs 3.87g and measures 24.9mm in length, 15.7mm in width and 9.3mm in thickness.

Flint tool, probably a scraper, dating from the late Neolithic to the Early Bronze Age. The tool is sub-oval in shape with one curved retouched edge. The tool appears to be bifacially worked although this may be simply a result of wear. The tool weighs 5.4g and measures 28.9mm in length, 19.8mm in width and 9.4mm in thickness.

Object type: FLAKE

County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Small leaf shaped flint flake. The flake has no retouch and has been subject to heat, indicated by the cracked cortex. The flake has a double dorsal ridge and the ventral face is rough and cracked – again probably as a result of fire. The flake weighs 3.17g and measures 28.46mm in length, 16.9mm in width and 6.6mm in thickness.

Flint scraping tool or knife. The tool (sometimes known as slug knives) is finely worked across almost the entire dorsal face. On the ventral surface there is a small patch of bifacial working along the left edge. The tool is leaf shaped and curved. It weighs 11.24g and measures 57.1mm in length, 24.5mm in width and 7.9mm in thickness.

A possible worked flint possible blade (length: 53.7mm; width: 17.5mm; thickness: 8.1mm; weight: 7.43g). General working is recognisable on the dorsal and ventral. The bulb of percussion is no longer visible on the ventral, but some ripples or 'lunettes' are still visible running down the flint's length. There are smaller worked areas along the left side of the ventral. Part of the core is still visible at one end.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A group of four worked flint flakes/ debris (collective weight: 6.76g), all showing ripples or 'lunettes' on the ventral sides. No evidence of the bulb of percussion remains on any of them, and part of the core remains on the largest piece. There is no evidence of re-working to the sides, signifying that they are most likely to be waste.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A largely complete disc scraper, fabricated from a broad, squat flint flake, probably from the later neolithic or early bronze age. In plan the scraper is broadly circular, with a flat striking platform at the proximal end. In profile, the scraper has two convex sides which meet at the distal end, with the flat striking platform at the proximal end. The convex ventral face is formed by a bulb of percussion with a bulbar scar at the proximal end, and gentle ripples of the conchoidal fracture visible towards the distal end. There are some fractures on the perimeter of the ventral face, b…
