Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete knapped flint side-and-end-scraper of probable late Neolithic to Bronze Age date (c. 3000-1150 BC). It has been manufactured on a secondary flake of mid brown 'tan' coloured flint, with a pale off-white cortex still covering c. 30% of the dorsal surface. It is broadly circular in plan, demonstrating a sub-lenticular cortical platform with a prominent cone of percussion suggestive of hard-hammer detachment as regarding the original support. Semi-abruptly angled short retouch removals are visible around virtually the entire circumference of the piece (excepting the platform) …

County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A broken knapped tertiary flint flake of probable later Prehistoric date, c. 4500-1150 BC.

County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A virtually complete knapped flint scraper of probable Late Neolithic to Middle Bronze Age date, c. 3000-1500 BC. It is broadly oval in plan and plano-convex in section, manufactured on a tertiary flake of dark blackish flint which now demonstrates a speckled bluish patina in places interspersed with post-depositional iron staining. The platform is plain and relatively small, with a medium sized step fracture directly below it on the dorsal surface. The lateral and distal edges of the scraper demonstrate secondary modification in the form of directly applied scalar retouch which create…

Two knapped flint flakes of probable later Prehistoric date (Neolithic to Middle Bronze Age), c. 4000-1500 BC. Both have been manufactured on a dark blackish flint which has patinated to a mottled light blue colour, one retaining a small patch of cortex towards its proximal end and the other a patch at its platform. Both appear to be hard-hammer removals, with prominent bulbs of percussion and multiple dorsal arrises. Lengths: 37.19/34.61mm, combined weight: 5.19g.

Object type: LEAF ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete knapped flint leaf-shaped arrowhead dating to the Early or Middle Neolithic, c.4000-3000 BC. It is broadly lenticular in plan and section, corresponding to Green's (1980) form 2c. Manufactured on a piece of translucent brownish flint that for the most part has patinated to a mottled white and blue colouration, it demonstrates working on both faces, with long covering retouch achieved via the means of pressure flaking. On the original dorsal face practically none of the original flake surface survives, though a small portion is visible on the ventral face, which also demonstr…

County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete struck flint flake of probable Neolithic or Bronze Age date, c. 4000-1500 BC. It is broadly rectangular in plan, with a plain platform and prominent bulb of percussion on its ventral face denoting hard-hammer removal. The flake is short and squat, having been struck into a concavity within the original core and subsequently terminating in a step fracture. There is a single large flake negative on its upper surface. Preserved in fresh condition with a slight bluish grey patina, it survives to a length of 20.24mm, 28.13mm wide, and 6.83mm thick at its midpoint. It weighs 5.5g.

An incomplete knapped flint flake of probable Neolithic or Bronze Age date, c. 4000-1150 BC. This piece consists the shattered mesial and distal sections of a rather thick-sectioned and squat flake that terminates in an irregular hinge fracture, struck from a core of dark black flint with large sporadic inclusions and a single negative removal on its dorsal surface, which itself demonstrates a covering of c. 40% light brown cortex. Preserved in relatively fresh condition, it survives to a length of 28.05mm down its axis of percussion, 34.99mm wide, and 8.79mm thick at its midpoint. It …

A knapped flint retouched flake of probable Neolithic or Bronze Age date, c. 4000-1150 BC. It demonstrates a prominent bulb of percussion denoting hard hammer detachment, and a plain unprepared platform. The tool itself has been manufactured on a secondary flake of dark blackish grey flint with medium to large white inclusions, demonstrating a single prominent dorsal arrise and c. 20% cortex covering its distal end. The flake appears to have been inversely notched at the mesial section of its dorsal left edge, with some directly applied short scalar removals also in evidence. Preserved…

A knapped flint tertiary flake of probable Neolithic or Bronze Age date, c. 4000-1150 BC, struck from a core of tan flint. It is broadly sub-triangular in plan, with a diffused bulb and lipped platform suggesting detachment via soft hammer, though the piece terminates in a hinge rather than feather fracture. The platform is plain and unprepared, while the dorsal surface demonstrates a single prominent arrise and irregular negative hinge fracture. Relatively recent edge damage is visible on the ventral face of the dorsal left edge. Preserved in relatively fresh condition, it measures 25…

Four struck flakes of probable Neolithic or Bronze Age date, c. 4000-1500 BC. Three are secondary flakes originating from a core of bluish grey flint, with light brownish cortex visible on their dorsal faces. The remaining flake is a tertiary piece struck from a core of light brownish grey flint and remains relatively unpatinated. The largest terminates in an irregular hinge-fracture. All are hard-hammer pieces, demonstrating prominent bulbs of percussion. Lengths range between 28.34mm and 50.99mm, combined weight: 32.35g.

County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete knapped flint end-scraper dating to the Neolithic or Bronze Age, c. 4000-1500 BC. The scraper is sub-triangular in form, with an oblique distal edge. The platform and bulb have been been partially knapped away, while the dorsal surface demonstrates a single prominent arrise. The distal end of the piece has been blunted by the means of directly applied scalar retouch that forms a blunted scraping edge. Preserved in slightly abraded condition, it measures 37.78mm long, 51.45mm wide at its widest point, and 10.69mm thick at its midpoint. It weighs 24.67g.

A complete knapped flint side-scraper of Neolithic or Bronze Age date, c. 4000-1500 BC. It is oval in plan and plano-convex in section, manufactured on a hard-hammer detached tertiary flake, demonstrating a prominent bulb of percussion and irregular platform. One end of the flake demonstrates inversely applied scalar/sub-parallel retouch that creates a convex scraping edge along the dorsal right edge and more irregular inverse retouch along its dorsal left edge. Preserved in very fresh condition and relatively unpatinated, it measures 43.64mm long down its axis of percussion, 52.63mm w…

An incomplete knapped flint retouched flake of probable Neolithic or Bronze Age date, c. 4000-750 BC. Knapped from a core of light orangey tan translucent flint, it is broadly rectangular in plan and curves in section, with a single prominent dorsal arrise. The tip of the proximal end has broken away, while the bulb of percussion is now only partially visible due to secondary working. Direct scalar retouch has been applied to the dorsal proximal left edge, though edge damage is also visible on the ventral face of both lateral edges. Preserved in fresh condition and completely unpatinat…

Two struck flint flakes of probable later prehistoric date (Neolithic/Bronze Age) dating c. 4000-750 BC. Both are relatively squat hard hammer secondary removals, demonstrating c. 20-30% cortex on their dorsal faces.

A complete struck flint flake of probable later Prehistoric date (Neolithic or Bronze Age) c. 4000-1500 BC. It is sub-rectangular in plan, with a cortical platform and prominent bulb of percussion indicating hard-hammer removal, co-incident with a small erallieur scar.

Object type: HAMMERSTONE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete flint hammerstone probably dating to the Neolithic or Bronze Age, c. 4000-750 BC. It consists a partly cortified sub-spherical lump of flint, with heavy abrasion, signs of crushing and batter marks covering most if its surfaces. It measures c. 74.04mm in diameter, and weighs 643g. Hard hammerstones of this size and weight would likely have been utilised for the primary stages of knapping, 'opening' the nodule and removing initial flakes.
