Object type: BLADE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Essex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete struck flint blade of probable Mesolithic or Neolithic date, c. 8000-3000 BC. Only the mesial section remains, the proximal and distal ends truncated in neat fractures that may have occurred during the blade's detachment from its core. Rectangular in plan and struck from a core of mottled greyish white flint, it retains two dorsal arrises and parallel sides, while the ventral face demonstrates prominent rings of percussion suggesting hard-hammer detachment. Preserved in relatively fresh condition with only minor edge damage to its edges, it survives to a length of 33.29mm…

Object type: CORE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A knapped flint blade core of probable Mesolithic to Neolithic date, c. 6000-3000 BC. It is broadly cuboidal in form, demonstrating at least ten negative blade removals on its outer surfaces. Both ends have been rejuvenated and used as platforms, with opposing pairs of removals occuring. One platform is flanked by a patch of cortex which now covers c. 10-15% of the entire object's surface, while the other demonstrates a crushed area abutting several failed blade removals with overhanging step fractures resulting from an inadequate knapping angle. Preserved in fairly fresh condition wi…

Object type: ADZE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete knapped flint adze dating to the Mesolithic period, c. 8000-4000 BC. It is broadly lenticular in plan and plano-convex in section, with a slightly tapered butt, expanded sides, rectilinear cutting edge and flattened underside. Manufactured originally from a large piece of blackish brown flint with some green and yellow mottling, it has been bifacially worked- both faces demonstrate highly invasive removals that have removed practically all of the original flake surfaces, though those on the underside of the adze are thinner, wider and low-angle, suggestive of preferential u…

Record ID: SF-C4FD31
Object type: FLAKE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete knapped flint flake of probable later Mesolithic to Neolithic date, c. 6000-3500 BC. Struck from a core of tan-coloured unpatinaed flint, it demonstrates a plain lenticular platform with a prominent lipped bulb of percussion inferring hard hammer detachment. On its dorsal face are two blade-like negatives, while there is some minor edge damage towards its distal end. Preserved in fresh condition, it measures 37.48mm long, 20.10mm at its widest point, and 4.51mm thick at its midpoint. It weighs 4.69g.

Object type: CORE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Four knapped flint blade-cores of probable Mesolithic date, c. 8000-4000 BC. Each core is described in turn. 1. Sub-cylindrical blade core on a piece of blackish blue flint, mostly still covered with cortex. The core demonstrates bipolar working from either end, with one platform partially broken away due to a large hinge-fracture. Numerous opposing blade negatives are visible on both ends of the core. Preserved in fresh condition, it measures 58.27mm long, 26.36mm thick at its midpoint, and weighs 66.88g. 2. Sub-cylindrical blade core on piece of yellowish brown flint, some cor…
