Record ID: WMID-7943B7
Object type: LAUREL LEAF
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An early to middle Neolithic knife, dating from c. 3500-2900 BC. The object is a light to mid-brown coloured flint formed from a broad blade-like debitage flake. It is bifacially worked; however most of the removals are from the dorsal face. On the dorsal face there are large scars across the centre and at the edges the retouch is long, scaled, and low angled. The dorsal face is convex and the ventral face slightly concave. It measures 82.12 mm long, 41.89 mm wide and 11.79 mm thick. It weighs 48.5 grams.

Object type: AXE HAMMER
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Stone perforated axe-hammer of probably the very late Neolithic or early Bronze Age period, dating from c. BC 2500 - c. BC 1800. Axe-hammers are also known as Battle Axes and some of the smaller examples have been recorded as perforated maces (mace-heads). The differences between these types / classifications are uncertain and the artefact type as a whole is in need of reassessment in line with modern discoveries and approaches to artefact studies. The axe-hammer is probably formed of a fine grained sandstone. The rock has yet to be properly identified by an expert. In plan th…

A complete flint debitage flake of the Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age period, dating from c. BC 3000 - BC 1500. The object is broadly leaf shape in plan and triangular in section. There are the remains of a pronounced bulb of percussion at the proximal end of the ventral face, with evidence of shallow concoidal ripple marks. There appears to be evidence of short, parallel, abrupt retouch on the right edge towards the distal end. On the dorsal face around 25% of the cortex remains. There is evidence of long, parallel, semi abrupt retouch on the left side towards the proximal end…

Flint working debitage of probably the Neolithic to Bronze Age period, dating from c. BC 4000 - BC 800. The object is probably a tertiary waste flake removed from a larger core, it may have been subjected to further working. The object is broadly triangular in plan and broadly D shape in section. The right side of the dorsal face has 2 rectangulars removal which both have very shallow conchoidal ripple marks radiating from the proximal end. There appears to be some evidence of scaled retouch at a low angle on the right of the dorsal face at the proximal end. The ventral face sho…

County: Worcestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete Mesolithic to Neolithic retouched flake, dating 10,000-2,350 BC. The flake is triangular in form with retouch on both mesal sides. The bulb of percussion is visible on the ventral face, few other indicators of knapping are present. The type of retouch is short, sub-parallel and low-angled. Due to the incompleteness of this object it is difficult to further specify a period of production. Dimensions: length: 22.93 mm; width: 20.6 mm; thickness: 4.87 mm; weight: 1.6g.

A flint scraper of probable later Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date (2700-1800 BC). The scraper is broadly oval in shape, knapped from a secondary flake. The upper dorsal face of the scraper exhibits a series of flake scars on the right hand side suggesting that this piece has been heavily worked / reworked. The ventral face is flat with a series of conchoidal ripples and the bulb of percussion present. The striking platform has been reworked. There is a small amount of cortex present on the left hand side of the dorsal face. The areas of retouch extend around 80% of the outer edges …
