County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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 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…

An incomplete retouched tertiary flint blade of later Mesolithic date, circa 4500-3000 BC. The flint blade is broadly rectangular in plan and wedge shaped in profile. The dorsal face has evidence of retouch on the long edges and at the distal end. The retouch is short, scaled and low angled. The right hand side of the dorsal face has had significant reworking that forms a distinct notch. On the dorsal face two parallel flakes have been removed along the length. The point of percussion and knapping platform are present on the ventral face and the bulbar scar and conchoidal ripples a…

An incomplete flint blade of probable Mesolithic date (6500BC - 3500BC). The flint blade is broadly rectangular in plan and trapezoidal in profile. The bulb of percussion and proximal end have both been removed through snapping. The dorsal face has evidence of retouch on the long edges and at the distal end. The retouch is short, stepped and semi-abrupt to form a scrapping/cutting tool. The dorsal face shows a long narrow parallel removal scar in the centre. The flint is a white colour with cream coloured inclusions. The blade measures 23.04mm length, 16.54mm width, is 6.29mm thic…

An incomplete struck / knapped secondary debitage flake, of probable Late Mesolithic dating (c. 7,000 BC to c. 4,000 BC). The debitage flake has a trapezoidal cross section, and is sub square in shape. The length/width ration indicates that it is consistent with a bladelet. Minimal retouch is present along one of the long edges (short, subparallel, low angle). The remains of a bulb of percussion is present at one end. The blade has been made from a light brown flint, with little surface patination. Length: 24.8 mm Width: 19.8 mm Thickness: 4.8 mm Ratio: 1.3:1 Weight: 3.2 g
