Record ID: WMID-AF0383
Object type: BLADE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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…

Object type: FLAKE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A prehistoric knapped flake, probably of Neolithic or early Bronze Age in date. The flint has a clear bulb of percussion at the proximal end as well as a striking platform. There are also negative scars on the dorsal surface where other flakes have been removed. Possibly very fine retouch is visible on the left edge, although this may have been caused by abrasion. The tip has been broken off, and judging by the even patina on the flake this seems to have occurred some time ago, although whether this occurred in prehistory is difficult to determine. The flint is a mottled ochre brown i…

County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A knapped flint blade with retouch. Length 41.4mm; width: 27.1mm; thickness: 9.5mm; mass: 8.2g. The blade is broken at the distal end. The blade is partly coritical and dark grey and off white in colour. On the ventral face there is a bulb of percussion at the proximal end, with a small bulbar scar and ripples of the concoidal fracture running down the face. On the dorsal side there are multiple scars, and on one edge there is some invasive, retouch and a notch. It is unclear if the notch is an original feature or whether it represents damage. There are also some scars between t…

County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A knapped flint flake. Length 29.1mm; width: 18.5mm; thickness: 5.9mm; mass: 2.9g. The blade is non-cortical and grey in colour. The blade has convex sides which run from a narrow proximal end to the wider broken base at the distal end. On the ventral face of the scarred (?retouch) narrow proximal end there is a bulb of percussion, with pronounced ripples of the concoidal fracture below this. One edge of the blade has some small scars on both dorsal and ventral faces, creating a mildly serrated edge. The other edge is a scarred ridge with a slight notch in it. The blade is likely to b…

Record ID: WMID-DCC1B6
Object type: FLAKE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A worked flint flake of prehistoric date. The flake has a clear bulb of percussion and striking plaform at the proximal end as well as a bulbar scar on the ventral face. The flake exhibits what may possibly be retouch on both left and right edges, although there is a strong possibility that this 'retouch' is the result of accidental damage caused during use of the flake as a cutting tool or even after deposition.This is suggested by its slightly irregular spacing with only small areas of both sides exhibiting retouch, along with a lack of any clear functional reason for the applicato…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A knapped flint or chert scraper. The flint or chert is a mid red/brown colour with red/beige patches. In plan it is a sub-drop shape. The dorsal face (the face with the most scars) has retouch around the side and lower edges, the base of the drop shape. The retouch is formed by long, narrow parallel negative scars. The angle of the retouch is c. 60 degrees. The ventral face (smooth face) has no retouch, but has bulbar scars as well as the bulb and concentric rings. The scraper, with the striking platform at the top, is 36.98mm long and is 28.64mm wide. It weighs 10.6g. The scraper…

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…

Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An early Neolithic flint leaf shaped arrowhead. The arrowhead is of ogival type, with a rounded butt which tapers to a point. The arrowhead is convex, with a rounded dorsal face and a flat ventral face. Retouch has been applied to both faces of the arrowhead, although only partially, and the retouch does not cover the whole of the surface of the arrowhead as seen on the most elaborately worked examples. The arrowhead is now quite worn and the edges are not as sharp as they would once have been. The flint has a pale grey to cream patina. The piece measures 38.03 mm in length, 15.5 mm wi…

Two worked flints, both probably scrapers. One of the scrapers is largely cortical on the ventral face. There appears to be retouch along the right edge, probably allowing the flint to be used as a scraper. This flint measures 31.3 mm long, 26.25 mm wide, 9.4 mm thick and weighs 8 grams. The flint is an orange to brown in colour. The second flint may also be a small scraper. Retouch has been applied to several parts of the flint around the edges. It measures 18.6 mm in length, 11.1 mm wide, 4.8 mm thick and weighs 0.9 grams. It is an orange to dark brown in colour. The f…

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A retouched flint flake of probable Neolithic date. The flake is sub-trapezoidal in shape and appears to be broken, missing its proximal end. It has been retouched using pressure flaking on the left lateral edge, and was possibly used as a cutting blade. The flint is a pale cream in colour. It measures 15.4 mm long, 24.65 mm wide, 2.7 mm thick and weighs 1.3 grams.
