Object type: AXE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Worcestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
The axe is a polished axe head dating to the Neolithic period, -3500 to -2100. Originally the axe would have been secured to a wooden handle. Jon Radley, Warwickshire Museum, has identified the axe as being knapped and polished flint. The flint is a pale mottled grey colour. In plan the axe is a rounded sub-rectangle which tapers towards the butt. The blade is a slightly irregular edge due to damage. There are negative scars, particularly on one which do not appear to be purposeful. In section the axe is a sub-oval. Off-centre towards the blade the axe in profile is humped on…

The possible arrowhead has been knapped from a mid brown coloured flint. In plan it is a sub-triangular shape, not quite a leaf-shape. Re-touch has occurred on the dorsal and ventral surfaces, particularly around the edges and atthe point. There are blank areas of re-touch below the point. In profile there arrowhead does have a at its most thickest below the point, 5.6mm thick. It is 31.6mm long, and 21.6mm wide. It weighs 3.23g. The arrowhead is probably of the Neolithic period.

The scraper is a convex scraper. These are dated to the Neolithic through to the Bronze Age. The scrpaer has been knapped from flint. The flint is an opaque choclate brown colour. In plan the scraper is a sub-lozenge shape. The striking platform is positioned at one 'corner'. The dorsal face has retouch around the two lower edges. The ventral face has no retouch, but has bulbar scars and a chip on the lower edge. The scraper, with the striking platform at the top, is 28.3mm long and is 22.3mm wide.

Ten knapped flint flakes. The flakes are knapped from an opaque mid brown or grey coloured flint. Some flakes have developed a mottled blue/grey and white patina. The flakes are both primary and secondary flakes, with the primary flakes have cortex remaining. Each has patches of cortex remaining. The flakes weigh 12.5g. The flakes are probably is prehistoric, dating to the Mesolithic or early Bronze Age periods (-8300 to -1500) when considering the size of the scars on the dorsal surface.

Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Worcestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Leaf shaped flint arrowhead (projectile point) of probable early Neolithic date (3000-2500 BC). The arrowhead is ‘kite-shaped’ in that it is broadly oval in plan with graduated expanding and tapering edges that form a pointed tip to a relatively wide mid point which tapers to the base. In this example there is damage at the base. In cross section the arrowhead is broadly lentoid. The arrowhead has been bi-facially worked with pressure ‘ripple’ flaking that covers almost the entire body of the arrowhead. The long edges and point have been flaked most heavily. The thickness of th…

Object type: BARBED AND TANGED ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Worcestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A knapped flint barbed and tanged arrowhead dating from the late Neolithic to the Middle Bronze Age. Mass: 1.3g. Length: 22.1mm; width: 17.8mm. Thickness: 4.2mm. The arrowhead is bifacially worked and sub-triangular in plan, with two notches in the basal and proximal area, between a central tang and a barb at either side. The arrowhead has invasive retouch on both faces, although this is absent from the central area of one face. There is a very small notch in the point. The barbed and tanged arrowhead is similar to Green's Sutton b type (i) (see Green, 1980, "The Flint Arrowheads of t…

A knapped flint Neolithic polished axe. The flint has developed a pale mottled patina on the majority of the axe’s surface which is a beige/cream colour. In plan the axe is a sub-drop shape, with a narrowed butt in width and depth. The narrowness is intentional and additional flakes which are unpolished have been removed to shape it in this way. The sides of the axe are facetted, the facets continue to the butt terminal, and tapers towards the blade. One side facet is rounded and smooth, other side facet is more angular and flattened. The blade is rounded and asymmetrical. It is stil…

Knapped flint flake with a notch. The flake is a sub-rectangle in plan. The dorsal surface has vertical slender negative scars. Along a lateral edge re-touch has occurred on the dorsal surface forming a notch. The ventral surface has ripples from striking. The flint is a brown. The flake measures 43.7mm long and 19.18mm wide. It weighs 4.8g. Butler (Butler, C. 2005 Prehistoric Flintwork Tempus p. 54) comments that notched pieces are found throughout history, but are not a common tool. This flake probably dates to the Neolithic to early Bronze Age period (-3500 to -1500).

A possible knapped flint scraper, made from a mottled mid grey coloured flint. The scraper is sub oval in plan with a lower edge having a rounded edge which has re-touch on the dorsal surface as well as two transverse negative linear scars, one of which may be recent damage. The ventral surface has ripples but two edges are due to recent damage rather than being knapped. It measures 22.8mm long and 22.89mm wide. It weighs 5.6g. The possible scraper is prehistoric, probably dating to the later Neolithic or early Bronze Age (-2500 to -1500).
