Record ID: WMID-A91B15
Object type: BLADE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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.

County: Staffordshire
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.

Object type: BARBED AND TANGED ARROWHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint barbed and tanged arrowhead (length: 38mm; width: 29mm; thickness: 4mm; weight: 3.67g). A finely knapped artefact (particularly along the edges) forming a sharply pointed tip as well as particularly square barbs and the base of the arrowhead is convex in plan. The barbs are slightly shorter than the tang and angle upwards to the right on the outside edge. This arrowhead has clear parallels with those of the Conygar Hill types which are present through-out Britain (Stephen Green, 1980, pages 117, 123 & 127, figs 46 & 50). The barbed and tanged arrowheads are largely dated to th…

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Staffordshire
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…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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…

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint flake, with retouch on the distal end, possibly dating from the neolithic period (3500 BC to 2100 BC). The function of the tool is uncertain. This is a secondary flake, with approximately 10% cortex on the dorsal surface. At the proximal end is the striking platform. The ventral face has a bulb of percussion, and ripples of the conchoidal fracture run down the surface. Ripples on the dorsal surface are broadly unidirectional. Viewed in plan, the distal end is uneven. There is a projection to one side, with retouch on both sides of the distal edge (low angle of retouch,…

A small waste dominated lithic assemblage of ten probably mesolithic (8300BC to 4500BC) worked flints, found scattered over a field (approx 100m2). Some of the flints are incomplete; some damage appears recent, possibly from ploughing. 1. Blade, largely complete but the distal tip is missing, black/brown flint, approximately 10% cortex, incomplete bulb of percussion and shallow ripples of the conchoidal fracture on the ventral face.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A collection of twenty-nine knapped flint waste flakes or debitage, probably dating to the Neolithic period between 4000 – 2200 BC (collective weight: 117.57g). None of these flakes/ debitage appear to have a bulb of percussion or radial scars visible, although ripples or ‘lunettes’ are evident on most pieces indicating the force of the striking or knapping and some have multiple arrises. Additionally, there is little evidence of finer knapping along the surfaces of the flakes in order to produce a sharper working edge.

On the ventral side of the artefact, there is a bulb of percussion with two eraillure scars and multiple radiating ripples or ‘lunettes’ below and running down the length of the flake towards the distal end. On the dorsal side, there are three main arrises, but there is no retouch along the edges. A blade, according to Bond, C, J, 2004 ‘Guide to the Identification, Assessment and Recording of Lith…

An incomplete knapped flint probable circular scraper, dating to the Neolithic period, between 4000 – 200 BC (diameter: 33mm; thickness: 5.5mm; weight: 4.7g). There is retouch on both sides of the scraper, which is particularly evident on one side where the retouch runs around its circumference. The artefact has been broken across the centre. The flint is dark brown/ grey in colour. According to Bond, C, J, 2004 ‘Guide to the Identification, Assessment and Recording of Lithics, Version 1’, page 206, a scraper is ‘a retouched form that retains an edge, by retouching to an a…

A complete knapped flint probable awl or piercer (re-used from an earlier flake), dating to the Late Neolithic – Early Bronze Age period, between 3000 – 1800 BC (length: 40.5mm; width: 23mm; thickness: 7mm; weight: 5.8g). There appears to be a multiple bulbs of percussion at the top of the ventral side of the artefact, as well as notches to the left and right. On the dorsal side, the artefact terminates with a pointed piercer at the top and retouch predominantly to the left and right, as well as at the rounded bottom end. A piercer can be defined as a borer form (with a narrow p…
