Record ID: SF-145F64
Object type: AXE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete Neolithic flaked an polished flint axe. It is roughly triangular in shape, with largely straight sides and a slightly outwards curving blade end. Both faces are covered with scaled, covering retouch and have been partially polished on the ridges between the flaking scars. The blade end has also been polished to create a sharp cutting edge. There is an abrupt break across the butt end and its tip is missing. The flint is an opaque light grey in colour with some surface patination. Length: 94.87mm, width: 48.86mm, thickness: 11.93mm, weight: 16.37g

Object type: ADZE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete flint late Mesolithic to early Neolithic probable adze. It is largely straight-sided (although both sides curved outwards very slightly), tapering slightly towards one end, with rounded ends and an irregular flattened lozenge-shaped cross-section. There is invasive, scaled flaking on both faces and a possible attempt at a tranchet flake removal from one face of the cutting edge. There is some damage around the butt end and a small section missing here. There is also a notch caused by damage to the blade ned. The flint is a mid-grey in colour with slight patination on one…

An incomplete flint late Mesolithic to early Neolithic probable adze. It is straight-sided, tapering slightly towards one end, with rounded ends and an irregular plano-convex cross-section. There is invasive, scaled flaking on both faces and a possible attempt at a tranchet flake removal from one face of the cutting edge. There is some damage around the butt end and possibly a small section missing here. The flint is a mid-grey in colour with slight patination and some orange staining in places. The presence of a potential tranchet flake suggests that this example may be of late Me…

Object type: AWL
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint awl or borer of probable Neolithic to early Bronze Age date. A triangular secondary flake with thick orange cortex covering the proximal end. Both faces are covered with a milky patina, which has been deliberately removed in a few places on the dorsal face suggesting that an older object was reused at a later date. There is long, scaled, low angle retouch along the right side of the ventral face and short, abrupt, irregular retouch around the distal end of the dorsal face, which together create a rounded point at the distal end. The bulb has been removed. The flint is mid grey…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete flint late Neolithic to early Bronze Age flint implement, possibly a knife. It is roughly triangular in shape with a shorter straight side and two outwards curving longer sides. It is oval in cross-section and bifacially worked. There is low angle, scaled retouch covering both faces with a small amount of cortex remaining in places on both. There is an unworked section on one face behind the straight side, which is still covered with a thick whitish patina. The two longer sides coverge to produce a rounded point with some damage around it. The flint is a mottled dark grey c…

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete Neolithic flint axehead. It is elongated with straight sides and rounded ends, the cutting end wider than the butt end. Both faces are convex and covered with small flaking scars. The surface around these scars has been highly polished and they are positioned at different levels to one another, suggesting that most are original features of the object rather than accidental damage. Inwards curving notches have been removed on one face just behind the butt end from either side, perhaps to aid hafting. There is some damage to one side of the cutting edge. The flint is milky…

County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete flint scraper of Neolithic to early Bronze Age date. It is triangular in shape with a pointed distal end and straight proximal side. The dorsal face is convex and the ventral face flat. Formed on a secondary flake with a small amount of chalky cortex surviving on the dorsal face. There is a small amount of very crude, scaled, short, semi-abrupt retouch along all of the sides. It has a slight patina, which is heavier in places. There are a few small flakes that have removed the patination, but this is probably later damage. The flint is brown in colour. Length: 45.02mm, w…

An incomplete Neolithic flint flaked and polished axehead. It is roughly ovoid in shape, becoming narrower towards the butt end, and strongly plano-convex in cross section. Both faces have multiple scaled flaking scars running in different directions. These are still visible in several places, although their upper edges and the surface surrounding them has been polished. A small amount of pebble cortex survives in the centre of each face. Both faces are highly polished at the cutting end producing a cutting edge that remains fairly sharp. There is an abrupt break across the butt end, …

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A fragment of a Neolithic flint polished axehead. It is roughly rectangular in shape and plano-convex in cross section. The outer face has small flaking scars in several places, but the area surrounding these has been smoothly polished, producing an almost flat surface. There is a rough, stepped break to one end, presumably the result of the impact that fractured the flake from the rest of the axe. The reverse face is covered with multiple scaled flaking scars running in different directions - possibly representing an attempt to sharpen the edges for re-use. The flint is a light, opaq…

Object type: CORE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Acomplete flint core of probable Neolithic to early Bronze Age date. It is roughly semi-circular in shape with cortex still covering the ventral face. There is no obvious butt and bult of percussion, suggesting that it was formed on a natural fragment of flint. The dorsal face is highly convex with small, narrow flaking scars running inwards from the centre. It appears to be too crude to have been used as a scraper and instead seems to have been a core from which small flakes were produced. Its crude form suggests a Neolithic or more probably an early Bronze Age date. Length: 47.68…

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete Neolithic polished flint handaxe. It is long and roughly oval in shape, but expanding slightly towards the blade end, and plano-convex in cross section with a slightly higher central ridge on one face. There is a small amount of invasive, scaled, low angle retouch along the sides and a chunk is missing from one side of the blade end. This break is heavily patinated suggesting that it occurred prior to deposition and possibly as a result of use. The flint, where it is exposed at the butt end, is light grey in colour, but the rest of the surface is very heavily patinated a…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Neolithic polished (and reworked) flint axehead. It is roughly triangular in shape and plano-convex in cross section. It expands slightly towards the blade end, which curves outwards and there is an abrupt break across the narrow butt end. Around 60% of each face features the original polished surface, but there is scaled, invasive, low-angle retouch along each side and a few smaller removals across the blade end, suggesting that the axe was modified at some point to allow further use - perhaps after it was damaged. The flint is light grey in colour, but the surface is heavily patin…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete flint flake with later reworking of probably Neolithic to early Bronze Age date. It is roughly oval in shape and triangular in cross-section. There are a series of small flaking scars on both faces, which are covered with thick white patination. This patination has been removed in a few places around the edges, particularly around the distal end of the dorsal face where there is a small patch of abrupt, sub-parallel, long retouch to the right side. The butt is narrow and the bulb of percussion has been removed. The flint beneath the patination is light grey in colour. Le…
