Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A complete struck / knapped flint naviform handaxe of Lower and / or Middle Palaeolithic dating (c. 800, 000 BC to c. 40,000 BC) The handaxe exhibits working on both dorsal (upper) and ventral (lower) faces, making it a biface handaxe (Debenath. A and Dibble, H. L.,1994, 126). Approximately 85% of the surface has been worked, with the original surface or cortex covering the remaining 15% of the surface. The biface has a rhomboid shape with a thick butt in profile which thins towards the tip and is a cream/yellow colour. On the dorsal side, roughly central about 20 mm from the butt…

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.

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.
