Record ID: SF8879
Object type: AXE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Small flint axe/chisel, with bifacial shallow flake scars and a tranchet cutting edge on one face. Black flint is visible where there is recent damage on the edges and at the butt, but otherwise it is patinated medium grey. Probably Mesolithic, as suggested by the tranchet edge, although the shallow cross-section could possibly suggest a Neolithic date.

Secondary flint flake, trapezoidal in shape with some pale grey surface patination on dark brown flint. The distal edge has some possible retouch, though this and some other possible retouch on the edges of the two sides may be recent agricultural damage. Probably Mesolithic or Neolithic.

Secondary flint flake, irregular in shape with some variable pale grey surface patination on dark brown or black flint of poor quality 'veined' gravel flint. One patch of cortex. There is some possible retouch, though this may be recent agricultural damage. Probably Mesolithic to Iron Age.

Record ID: SF7324
Object type: TRANCHET AXEHEAD
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Relatively crudely finished biface. Transverse flakes from the blade edge, and its asymmetric cross-section (one face flatter, one face more highly convex) support a Mesolithic date, and identification as a small tranchet axe. Black flint with large area of cortex on one long edge, and smaller areas of cortex on butt and on other long edge at butt end.

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Bifacially worked flint axehead with blade end missing. Gravel flint, mainly black but mottled with a little grey and white, particularly on one face. It is difficult to tell whether this is the nature of the flint, or whether it is due to partial patination. Small gravelly inclusion at butt. Some flakes have been removed from the break, which may be the result of re-use or of more recent damage. The asymmetric cross-section, with one face gently convex and the other more markedly peaked, together with surviving transverse flake removal near the blade end, suggest a tranchet axe o…

Record ID: SF6869
Object type: ADZE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Flint adze, relatively crude, with roughly plano-convex cross-section. Made from poor quality flint (in places cherty) with a blotchy pale and medium brown colour. Cortex survives on the convex face and unknapped flint survives in the centre of the flatter side. The blade edges (either end could function as a blade) are radially flaked and relatively straight. The form of the adze is similar to some Mesolithic tranchet adzes (although it lacks a tranchet edge); though the crudeness may suggest that it is a later (Neolithic) roughout for an axe or adze.
