Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A struck flint flake of uncertain later Prehistoric date. It is struck from a mottled grey/brown flint with light patination in places and cortex remaining at the distal end. The flake is triangular in cross-section and form, with a small bulb of percussion at the proximal end and parallel flake or blade scars on the dorsal face. At the distal end there is limited short, abrupt, and scaled retouch, perhaps suggesting usage as an end scraper or similar tool. It measures 80.81mm in length, 41.62mm in width, 18.18mm in thickness, and 44.63g in weight. This is a struck flake or blade, …

A flint object, possibly a core or simply debitage from flint production rather than a tool. It is roughly pentagonal in cross-section and struck from a mottled grey flint, with cortex remaining on one face. Two of the other faces have a darker brown patination or staining. A series of small parallel flake or blade scars are visible on the remaining areas, exposing the natural flint beneath the patina. These are perhaps evidence of deliberate blade/flake production with the object serving as a core, although this is uncertain. It measures 26.40mm in length/height, 21.02mm in width, 16…

AN incomplete flint object, possibly the butt end of an axe or adze of Mesolithic to Neolithic date. The surviving fragment is struck from a pale grey to white flint, is rectangular in form and pointed oval in cross section. It flares from the butt end before terminating in old breaks at what appears to be an impurity in the original flint.

Object type: MICROLITH
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
An unpatinated struck flint flake, possibly a microlith, of Mesolithic or later date. It is struck from a mottled grey flint, is triangular in form and trapezoidal in cross section. The object has a small striking platform and bulb of percussion, with a single flake removed from the bulb. Both sides and the proximal end have limited short, abrupt and scaled retouch. It measures 27.49mm in length, 9.60mm in width, 2.74mm in thickness, and 0.52g in weight. This is possibly a flint microlith, in which case it is likely to be of Mesolithic date, c.10,000-4,000 BC.

An unpatinated flint core of Mesolithic to Neolithic date. It is struck from a mottled grey flint, is roughly cylindrical in form, oval in cross-section, and has two opposing platforms. One face retains its cortex, and between the two striking platforms are multiple parallel and opposing blade scars. On one side of the core, next to the area of cortex, the core appears to have been rejuvenated with the removal of several broader flakes rather than blades. This core measures 41.61mm in length, 34.90mm in width, 29.28mm in thickness, and 42.14g in weight. It is of probable Mesolithic to…

A flint blade core of possible Mesolithic to Neolithic date. It is struck from a dark grey to black flint, is conical in form, with one flattened platform and cortex remaining on one edge. The remaining edges have multiple narrow parallel blade scars. This core measures 41.94mm in length, 33.10mm in width, 25.73mm in thickness, and 39.77g in weight. This is a core probably from the manufacture of blades or long flakes, suggesting that it is likely to date to the later Mesolithic to Neolithic periods, perhaps c.7000-2550 BC.
