A complete flint early Neolithic leaf-shaped arrowhead. It is formed from a secondary flake with a very small amount of cortex attached to one face at the distal end. It is large in size, roughly ovoid in shape and pointed oval in cross-section. Both faces are covered with scaled retouch and there is addition irregular, short, low angle retouch in places around the edges. The flint is light, translucent brown in colour with some orange staining in places. The proximal end has a small flake removed on one face creating a concave section, which may be intended to aid attachment. Leng…

County: Suffolk

An incomplete Neolithic flint leaf-shaped arrowhead. It is roughly oval in form, but with a straight break across the distal end. It is not clear whether this was deliberate or not. The dorsal face is covered with long, invasive, parallel scaled retouch. There is a small amount of short scaled retouch around the outside of the ventral face only. The flint is brown-grey in colour with lighter milky patches in places. This form of arrowhead is typical of the earlier Neolithic. Length: 33.86mm, width: 16.86mm, thickness: 4.15mm, weight: 2.77g

Flint arrowhead of late Neolithic date. Tertiary flake struck using a hard hammer. Trapezoidal in shape. Invasive, stepped retouch on the dorsal face, with a narrow tranchet flake removed from the distal end of the dorsal face, creating a sharp, chisel-like cutting edge. The narrow proximal end would have been hafted, with the broad edge as the arrow tip. The arrowhead is narrow and fairly crude. The flint is light grey in colour with a milky patina and some orange staining. Length: 28.54mm, Width: 17.51mm, Thickness: 4.89mm, Weight: 2.26g

Late Neolithic flint oblique arrowhead. Sub-triangular in shape. The longest edge curves outwards and continues downwards to form a barb. The other edge also curves outwards slightly, both joining to form a point at the tip. The base curves inwards. Invasive, scaled and sub-parallel, low-angle retouch along the short side and base of both faces. Shorter, semi-abrupt, sub-parallel and scaled retouch at the tip end of the longer side on both faces. The tip of the barb is missing. The flint is light grey in colour with a strong milky patina and some orange staining in places. …

A flint chisel arrowhead of late Neolithic date. The arrowhead is sub-triangular in shape. There is fine, short, sub-parallel, low angle retouch along the right edge of the dorsal face. Along the left edge of the same face is coarse, scaled, long, low angle retouch. The third edge has a single primary flake removed and no further retouch, creating a chisel-like effect. There are several larger flaking scars on the dorsal face, but the ventral face is largely smooth and flat. The bulb and butt have been removed. There are fairly strong lines of impact on the ventral face. According to …

Possible flint arrowhead of late Neolithic date. The object is sub-triangular in shape. The flint has a milky, speckled patina. The proximal end is missing. The break has exposed a greyish interior beneath the patination, suggesting that it occured post-deposition. There is semi-abrupt, long, sub-parallel retouch along the left and right edges of the dorsal face. The ventral face is fairly flat, with possible fine retouch along the right edge and the bulb is missing. The is evidence of plough damage in places along the edges and the very tip is missing. This is probably a fragment of …

An incomplete flint arrowhead of Neolithic to early Bronze Age date. Only the tip survives. This has a rounded end and is oval in cross-section with fairly sharp edges. Both faces are covered with fine, invasive, scaled retouch. The flint is light brown in colour and slightly translucent. All faces, including the break are covered with a patchy, milky patina. Unfortunately, because the butt of the arrowhead is missing, its original form is difficult to discern and therefore it is hard to date it more closely than this. Length: 22.60mm, Width: 16.97mm, Thickness: 4.45mm, Weight: 1.61g

A complete early Neolithic oblique flint arrowhead. Sub-triangular in shape, but asymetrical. The edge of the distal end curves inwards and a rounded spur protrudes slightly to one side only. The dorsal face is covered with semi-abrupt to low angle, covering, stepped retouch. The ventral face is slightly concave with no retouch in the centre, but with semi-abrupt to low angle, short to long, subparallel retouch along every edge. The flint is light milky brown in colour with a shiny patina. There is a small amount of orange soil staining in places. Length: 36.03mm, Width: 20.00mm, Thic…

Flint implement, probably an unusually shaped oblique arrowhead of late Neolithic date. The object is sub-triangular in form, but the side at the distal end curves inwards slightly leaving the two corners protruding, one wide and rounded and the other thinner, giving the object a slightly asymmetrical shape. Small flaking scars cover the dorsal face and the edges of the ventral face. Long, parallel, abrupt retouch at the distal end and patches of long, scaled, low-angle retouch along the left side, can both be seen on the dorsal face. On the ventral face there is fine, short, sub-paral…

Probable flint petit tranchet arrowhead (or small tranchet implement), of later Neolithic date. The arrowhead is small and sub-rectangular in form, formed on a tertiary flake. The ventral face is smooth and slightly convex with limited abrupt, scaled retouch on the right, creating a wide edge. The dorsal face has a few removals in the middle, with abrupt, scaled retouch on the right, once again creating a wide edge. The proximal end is wedge shaped and formed from three removals. However, the central one of these lacks the shiny patina of the rest of the object, suggesting it may be du…

An oblique flint arrowhead, probabaly dating to the later Neolithic. The arrowhead is sub-triangular in form, curving down at the proximal end to form an off-centre spur. The ventral face is smooth with semi-abrupt, short, sub-parallel removals along the right edge. There are also a number of low angle, invasive, scaled removals covering the spur at the proximal end, which juts down to the left. The dorsal face has one wide removal at the proximal end, with invasive, scaled retouch above this. There is also semi-abrupt, short, scaled retouch along the left side, curving down to the tip…

The tip of a flint arrowhead of Neolithic to Early Bronze Age date. The tip shows low-angle, covering, scaled retouch on both faces. The flint is light brown-grey in colour and is so finely worked that it is almost translucent around the edges. The small size of the fragment makes it difficult to determine the original shape of the arrowhead from which it originated. Length: 16.82mm, Width: 13.59mm, Thickness: 2.19mm Weight: 0.38g

Sub-triangular flint arrowhead, probably dating to the later Neolithic. The ventral face is slightly convex with low angle, invasive, scaled retouch along the right edge and semi-abrupt, long, scaled retouch along the edge of the proximal end. The dorsal face has a long, thin removals along the right side and a series of smaller ones on the left side and proximal end.

Probable flint tranchet arrowhead, dating to the later Neolithic. The arrowhead is sub-triangular in form. The ventral face is fairly flat with prominent ripple lines, a small bulb and wide butt. There is long, scaled, low angle retouch along the left edge. The dorsal face is slightly convex with a large transverse flaking scar on the right. There is a roughly triangular section of invasive, low angle retouch at the proximal end. The flint is mid grey-brown in colour, with darker patches and lighter flecks. It survives in good condition, but the very tip of the arrowhead is missing. L…
