County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint discoidal 'thumbnail' scraper dating to the Neolithic to Early Bronze Age period (c. 3000-1500). Formed on a secondary flake of translucent greyish-brown flint. The bulb of percussion is clear on the ventral face with several small bulb scars apparent. The dorsal face has a small area of patination across its left side. Some evidence of retouch is apparent at the distal end. The removals are short, scales and semi-abrupt. There is a hinge fracture towards the proximal end on the dorsal face.24.15mm in length, 21.7mm in width, 7.38mm in thickness and 4.2g in weight The overall…

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete flint scraper and borer of Mesolithic date (c. 9000-3450 BC). The lithic is sub-rectangular in plan and concavo-convex in section. The dorsal surface contains three predominant negative scars with corresponding arrises. The left hand side of the dorsal surface contains a small number of short, parallel removals done at a semi-abrupt angle. The distal end appears to have been abruptly blunted with a worked point for boring. There is also some retouch below the borer with the removals also short, parallel and done at a semi-abrupt angle. The ventral surface is convex with ripp…

A flint discoidal 'thumbnail' scraper dating to the Neolithic to Bronze Age period (c. 3000-800). Formed on a primary flake of opaque orangish-brown flint. The bulb of percussion is clear on the ventral face with no apparent ripples. Parts of the cortex are apparent at the proixmal and distal ends on the ventral face. The dorsal face is mostly covered with cortex, though a small section at the distal end shows evidence of retouch. The removals are mainly long, scaled and done at a low angle. The overall dimensions are as follows: 32.18mm in length, 40.73mm in width, 9.71mm in thicknes…

Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete knapped lithic implement of the late Neolithic to early Bronze Age period, probably dating from c. 2400 BC - c. 1600 BC. The object is probably a secondary flake removed from a larger core, and then subjected to further working, and was probably used as a scraper tool. The object is broadly D shaped in plan and broadly triangular in section. On the ventral face the striking platform is evident at the base of the proximal end, there is a small bulb of percussion and shallow, but clear, conchoidal ripple marks on the surface, suggestive of the use of a soft hammer when strik…

County: Staffordshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A complete, struck / knapped quartzite pointed biface handaxe of Lower and / or Middle Palaeolithic dating (c. 800, 000 BC to c. 250,000 BC). The biface has good evidence of working on both interior (upper) and exterior (lower) faces, making it a biface handaxe (Graf, A., 2004, 84). Approximately 75% of the total surface has been worked, with the original surface or cortex covering the remaining 25% of the surface. The interior face has been fully worked. The biface has an ovoid shape with a slight tapering towards the tip, with a rounded thick profile which thins at the tip. The but…

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.
