Record ID: LEIC-FDADEC
Object type: LEAF ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete late Neolithic to middle Bronze Age flint Arrowhead dating to c. 3450 - 1200 BC. The lithic is a Leaf-shaped arrowhead and is lentoid in plan and bi-convex in section. Both the dorsal and ventral surfaces have covering scaled flaking and all edges, with the exception of the proximal, have fine low angled retouch. The proximal edge has been abruptly blunted. The lithic retains no cortex and is therefore a tertiary flake. The flint is dark brown in colour. Length: 37 mm Width: 20 mm Thickness: 5 mm Weight: 3.51 g

A complete flint pick. A large core tool of dark grey flint. Made on a naturally fractured piece which retains areas of natural breaks which are patinated a dark orange-brown. One face of the pick has been knapped with regular flaking along its length. The opposite edge of the same face is also worked, but the flaking is less regular and does not cover the length. The other face has only one flake removal from the narrowed tip to form a crude cutting edge. The butt end is unworked and retains a naturally broken surface.

A probable later Neolithic flint flaked axehead, dating to 2700-2350 BC. A small axehead made on a large tertiary flake of beige flint which has patinated to blue-white colour. It is lozenge shaped in cross section. The implement has been bifacially worked to thin and shape it. The axehead flares from the rounded narrow but to the damaged cutting edge making it sub triangular in shape. There are remnants of probably deliberate abrasion along the sides, possibly to blunt them for use. There is damage along both sides and the cutting edge, some of which has been re-patinated.
