Record ID: SWYOR-B4C108
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.

Object type: END SCRAPER
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
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.

Object type: END SCRAPER
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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.

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint scraper dating from the late Neolithic - Early Bronze Age. The scraper is semi-circular in shape with a finely retouched section of curved edge on the dorsal face. The scraper appears to have been broken so that part is missing – this may be plough damage. There is a patch of cortex on the dorsal face at the butt. The ventral surface shows the bulb of percussion with ripples radiating from this point across the surface. There is no retouch on the ventral surface. The scraper weighs 3.87g and measures 24.9mm in length, 15.7mm in width and 9.3mm in thickness.

County: Staffordshire

End and side scraper probably dating to the Early Bronze Age. The scraper is oval shaped and the dorsal face has been worked almost across the whole surface. The retouch is continuous around the edge of the tool. The ventral surface shows a pronounced bulb of percussion with ripples radiating from this point across the surface. There is no retouch on the ventral surface. The scraper weighs 8.86g and measures 31.8mm in length, 22.8mm in width and 10.3mm in thickness.

Flint tool, probably a scraper, dating from the late Neolithic to the Early Bronze Age. The tool is sub-oval in shape with one curved retouched edge. The tool appears to be bifacially worked although this may be simply a result of wear. The tool weighs 5.4g and measures 28.9mm in length, 19.8mm in width and 9.4mm in thickness.

Flint side scraper probably dating to the Neolithic. The scraper is roughly tear shaped with one finely retouched scraping edge. The bulb of percussion is clear on the ventral surface. There is no retouch on the ventral surface. The scraper weighs 7.57g and measures 39.1mm in length, 26.5mm in width and 7.9mm in thickness and is knapped from honey coloured flint.

Object type: FLAKE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Small leaf shaped flint flake. The flake has no retouch and has been subject to heat, indicated by the cracked cortex. The flake has a double dorsal ridge and the ventral face is rough and cracked – again probably as a result of fire. The flake weighs 3.17g and measures 28.46mm in length, 16.9mm in width and 6.6mm in thickness.

County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint thumbnail scraper made from a flake and dating to the late Neolithic - Early Bronze Age. The scraper is sub-oval in shape with a finely retouched curved edge on the dorsal face. About a third of the edge in unworked - this is the butt area where the original flake was struck off the core. The dorsal surface is mostly covered in dark honey coloured cortex apart from on the retouched edges. The angle of retouch is about 45 degrees. The ventral surface has a pronounced bulb of percussion with ripples radiating from this point across the surface. There is no retouch on the ventral su…
