Record ID: SF9076
Object type: POLISHED AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Long narrow sub-triangular part-polished flint axehead. It is polished all over except for the larger flake scars along the edges. The blade is 41 mm wide and the axe then tapers, with straight sides, to a very narrow butt just 8 mm wide. The axe is complete, apart from two largish (recent?) chips to the blade and one from each edge; there are also two linear scrapes, both brown so perhaps from corroded iron, on one face. The flint is a blotchy pale/medium grey, appearing to be more pale brown where chipped.

Record ID: SF8848
Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Complete but very small flaked flint axehead, with slight polishing. The sides are convex, the butt is rounded and the cross-section is lenticular. The polishing is restricted to the higher areas of each face (very restricted on one face) and the edge of one side only - none is present on the oppsite side or the curved cutting edge at the wider end. The lack of polish on the cutting edge and one side, together with the small size, suggest that the axe may have been cut down from a larger axe, though as the existing polish is close to the unpolished edges there should only have been …

Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Perforated pebble-hammer. Irregularly oval or sub-triangular in shape, relatively flat and small, with a drilled central perforation. Each edge is convex; there are two chips off the straightest and longest edge, but otherwise the object is complete. The stone is fine-grained with a smooth hard surface, and pale/medium brown. The perforation is relatively straight, and this suggests a Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date rather than Mesolithic. The function as a 'pebble-hammer' seems at first sight unlikely, in view of the small size and thinness, and the narrowness of its 10 mm dia…

Object type: FLAKED AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Flaked unpolished flint axehead, complete and in very good condition with only a few slight grazes near the butt; presumably it was in the ploughsoil for only a short time. It is teardrop-shaped, with regular sides (which have been ground slightly smoother) and a convex cutting edge. It is made from a mainly pale brown/grey flint with some darker grey patches. Two small patches of cortex survive. Length 163 mm, width 64 mm, thickness 32 mm.

County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Struck secondary flint flake made from dark brown/black flint. An incipient cone of percussion (where the flint has been struck but a flake has failed to form) can be seen close to the bulb. Some cortex remains along one edge. Controlled flaking on the dorsal face suggests a Neolithic or Early Bronze Age date.

Record ID: SF8048
Object type: POLISHED AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Small, partially polished, pale grey flint axehead. The polish is mainly limited to the blade edge and one long edge. Lack of polish on the other long edge suggests that the axeheadis part of a largr original axe that has been re-knapped. The convex blade edge is slightly S-shaped in cross-section. One slight metallic scrape near the blade edge is the only definite sign of recent damage. Length 98 mm, maximum width 42 mm, blade width 23 mm, maximum thickness 25 mm.
