Record ID: WMID-537632
Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Neolithich knapped flint arrowhead of leafshaped type. The arrowhead is incomplete, missing the end which would have been inserted into the shaft of the arrow. The arrowhead has been bifacially worked with invasive retouch covering both surfaces of the flint. The flint is a mottled dark-to-light grey in colour. Find not photographed.

Record ID: WMID-17C5F4
Object type: BORER
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A knapped flint of prehistoric date, probably Neolithic. The tool has a clear bulb of percussion and bulbar scar from having been knapped from a core. A projection at the distal end of the flake may possibly have allowed it to be used as a borer or a piercer. The flint is a pale grey in colour. Find not photographed.

Record ID: WMID-17DDE4
Object type: FLAKE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A knapped flint of prehistoric date, possibly Neolithic. The flake does not appear to have been retouched after having been struck from the core. The flake is not of a good quality flint and has inconsistencies including an area of cortex. This is perhaps why it was not selected for further adaption. It is a pale grey to white in colour with an area of pale brown cortex. Find not photographed.

Record ID: WMID-187CB2
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A knapped flint end scraper of later Neolithic to early Bronze Age in date, formed from a flake with a hinge fracture on the ventral face. The flint is sub-oval in shape and has semi-abrupt retouch applied to the distal end allowing it to function as a scraper. A small area of white cortex remains on the dorsal face. Other than this the flint is of a mottled grey colour. Find not photographed.

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A knapped flint side scraper of probable Neolithic date. The flint also has an apparent burin spall removal at the distal end with a burin point formed, probably for boring or incising. The tool therefore may had a double function as a burin and a scraper. The left lateral edge has been retouched, probably to form a scraping edge. A small portion of pale cream coloured cortex has been retained at the distal end of the dorsal face, probably to allow the flint to be handled comfortably. The proximal end retains the bulb of percussion. The flint is a dark mottled grey in colour. The flin…

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A knapped flint side scraper of probable Neolithic date. The flint has been retouched predominantly on the right lateral edge of the ventral surface, forming a scraping edge. The tool appears to have been designed to have been held with the ventral surface facing the holder, using the scraping edge to scrape towards the tool user. It has a dark grey patina. Find not photographed.

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A knapped flint end scraper of probable Neolithic date. The flint has a clear striking platform and bulb of percussion at the proximal end on the ventral face. Semi-abrupt retouch has been applied to the distal end and the left lateral edge from the dorsal face. Approximately half of the dorsal face has an area of orange/brown cortex remaining, probably retained to allow the tool to be handled comfortably. The flint has a dark grey patina. Find not photographed.

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A knapped flint end scraper. The flint is possibly a 'button' or 'thumbail' scraper of later Neolithic to early Bronze Age date. The flint is sub-oval in shape and has an area of extensive retouch applied to the proximal end on the dorsal face. An area of brown cortex remains on the dorsal face at the distal end, presumably to facilitate comfortable handling by the user. The flint is a pale-to-dark grey in colour. Find not photographed.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A knapped flint side scraper of probable Neolithic date. The tool has retouch applied to the left lateral side, providing a scraping edge. A ridge runs down the centre of the dorsal face, making the flint sub-triangular in section. The flint is a mottled pale grey in colour. Find not photographed.

County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A knapped flint end scraper, possibly a 'button' or 'thumbnail' scraper of later Neolithic to early Bronze Age date. The tool has semi-abrupt retouch at the distal end. Cortex has been carefully retained on both lateral edges on the dorsal face, allowing the scraper to be held comfortably between finger and thumb whilst scraping. The cortex has a cream colour whilst the flint mottled white/grey in colour. Find not photographed.

Object type: FLAKE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A knapped flint of probable Neolithic date. The bulb of percussion and striking platform are clearly visible at the proximal end. There appears to be some retouch on left lateral edge and a small area on the right lateral edge. It may possibly have been used as a scraper. Whilst the flint superficially resembles that of an arrowhead the retention of the bulb of percussion and the lack of retouch on the ventral face suggests that is not one. The flint is a pale grey in colour. Find not photographed.

Record ID: WMID-52AA34
Object type: WORKED OBJECT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A knapped flint of probable Neolithic date. The flint is sub-triangular in shape and resembles an arrowhead in shape. However, the flint has no invasive retouch and it retains the bulb of percussion and striking platform, a very unusual feature in Neolithic or Bronze Age arrowheads as the bulb of percussion is normally removed to facilitate hafting. The 'arrowhead' shape therefore seems likely to be coincidence rather than design. Very fine possible retouch resembling a saw blade may have been applied to both lateral edges, although it is possible that this has been caused during use …

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A large knapped flint knife of probable Neolithic date. The flint has had retouch applied to parts of the cutting edge. An area of cortex has been retained on one lateral edge which would facilitate comfortable use of the tool, allowing the index finger to rest on this portion of the tool. The flint is predominantly dark brown in colour. Find not photographed.

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A knapped flint scraper of Neolithic date. The bulb of percussion and striking platform remain at the proximal end of the tool. Holding the flint with the proximal end facing the flint has had retouch applied from the dorsal face on the right lateral edge. However, it seems likely that the striking platform was used to rest the tip of the index finger on with the thumb resting on the centre of the dorsal face, allowing the worked scraper edge to be used to scrape towadrs the user. The flint is a mottled grey in colour. Find not photographed.

Object type: WORKED OBJECT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A piece of chert, possibly worked. If it has been knapped from a core, it does not appear to have been retouched subsequently. The object does not have any of the clear hallmarks of human intervention - it does not have a clear bulb of percussion or striking platform. What appears at first to be retouch on the lateral edges may actually be natural damage and wear. The chert has a pale brown colour. Find not photographed.

A knapped flint, possibly a scraper of Neolithic date. The dorsal face is almost entirely cortical. Retouch has been applied to the proximal end which may have been used as a scraping edge. The cortex is a pale brown in colour whilst the interior of the flint is dark brown colour. Find not photographed.
