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 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.

A Neolithic flint blade, dating between 4000-2200 BC (length: 28mm; width: 28.2mm; thickness: 11mm; weight: 8.70g). The bulb of percussion is clearly visible on the ventral side below the striking platform with only slight and sparse radiatting ribbles or 'lunettes'. There does also appear to be possible radial scars radiatting outwards from the bulb. On the dorsal, there is a line of off-white cortex along the left side with a large flaking scar in the centre running nearly to the end of the tool's length. A curved/ smei-circular blade to the right side on the dorsal which continu…

A worked flint tool of Neolithic date, formed from a blade. The tool is perhaps either a knife or an unfinished leaf shaped arrowhead. It has invasive retouch on the dorsal face but not on the ventral face. The striking platform, bulbar scar and bulb of perussion are still intact at the proximal end. It is likely that these would have been removed and that both surfaces would have been subjected to invasive retouch if it were a complete arrowhead. There is an area of cortex at the distal end of the flint which perhaps rendered it unsuitable for further working and, if an arrowhead, it…

Snapped knapped flint blade of probable later Mesolithic or earlier Neolithic date (4500 – 3500 BC). The flint is broadly sub-rectangular in plan and lentoid in cross section. The ventral (reverse) face has a distinct bulb of percussion and conchoidal fractures; a slight striking platform is present on the heel of the flake. The dorsal face show several flake scars. There is a little abrupt retouch to the long edges on the dorsal face, although this could easily be caused in the ploughzone through tumble. The flint is a mid greyish brown colour with a series of flaws and different co…

A prehistoric worked flint, probably a Neolithic to early Bronze Age blade. The flint has had significant retouch applied to one edge, presumably to facilitate comfortable handling.

An irregular knapped piece of blade-like debitage dated provisionally to the later Mesolithic period (6500-4500 BC). The debitage has a small area of cortex on the upper edge - suggesting that it has been struck from the outer edge of a core. One long edge has abrupt retouch applied with a hard hammer, although this may be a bi-product of movement within the ploughsoil. The blade measures 23.3mm length, is 13.5mm wide and 4.4mm thick; it weighs 1.27 grams.

A complete retouched bladelet of later Mesolithic date, circa 4500-3000BC. The blade was struck from a prepared core and if it had not been reworked would be best described as secondary debitage The flint is broadly triangular in plan and 'D' shaped in cross section. Approximately 50 % of the dorsal face is covered in a mid grey coloured chalk / limestone derived cortex. A striking platform and shallow bulb of percussion are present on the ventral face.One parallel sided blade removal is present on the dorsal face, suggesting that the core was relatively unworked when this blade wa…

An incomplete struck / knapped blade, formed from a tertiary debitage flake, of probable Neolithic dating (c. 4,000 BC to c. 2, 350 BC). The probable blade has a sub trapezoidal cross section, and is sub rectangular in shape. Retouch is present along both long sides (short, subparallel, semi-abrupt). The probable blade has been made from a piece of tertiary debitage. The flake has been made from a light grey flint, with little surface patination. Length: 48.5 mm Width: 24.6 mm Thickness: 7.0 mm Weight: 10.4 g

An incomplete struck / knapped blade, formed from a secondary debitage flake, of probable Neolithic dating (c. 4,000 BC to c. 2, 350 BC). The probable blade has a sub trapezoidal cross section, and is sub rectangular in shape. Retouch is present along the lower short side (short, subparallel, abrupt). The probable blade has been made from a piece of secondary debitage, probably the remains of a core for making blade. The flake has been made from a dark grey flint, with little surface patination.

An incomplete retouched tertiary flint blade of later Mesolithic date, circa 4500-3000 BC. The implement is a blade formed from a tertiary flake which has a D-shaped section. The blade has snapped at the proximal end, therefore the bulb of percussion is lost although the conchoidal ripples are visible. A number of small parallel flakes have been removed from the dorsal face. The retouch on the implement is short, parallel, low angled and is present along the left edge towards the distal end. It is likely that this blade was retouched around the long edges to be used as a scraping a…
