  • Thumbnail image of SF-0862D6

Record ID: SF-0862D6
Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A bifacially worked flint handaxe of Lower Palaeolithic date. It is struck from a dark grey/brown flint, pointed in form with rounded butt end, and pointed oval in cross-section. Both faces have extensive and thick mottled pale brown patination, with small areas of cortex remaining at the butt end of the dorsal(?) face and centre of the ventral(?) face. The object is bifacially worked with covering, low angled flake removal. More recent damage has resulted in exposure of the unpatinated flint, particularly around the edges and especially at the butt end where a large recent flake has b…

County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A patinated flint long flake or blade of possible final Upper Palaeolithic to Mesolithic date. It is struck from a grey/brown flint with partially patinated blue/grey surfaces. The proximal end has a hinge fracture and the distal end has a small area of unpatinated semi-abrupt and scaled retouch on the ventral face. The dorsal face has parallel flake or blade scars and both edges appear to have sigs of possible 'bruising'. It measures 108.66mm in length, 43.94mm in width, 14.77mm in thickness, and 50.90g in weight. This is a flint long flake or blade. It forms one part of a larger …

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A patinated flint 'bruised' blade of possible final Upper Palaeolithic to Mesolithic date. It is struck from a grey/brown flint with patinated blue/grey surfaces, snapped towards the distal end. The blade is trapezoidal in cross-section with small striking platform and bulb of percussion, and parallel blade scars on the dorsal face. The distal end has a hinge fracture and is patinated. Both sides have areas of 'bruised' edge damage, perhaps resultant from usage. It measures 125.16mm in length, 46.13mm in width, 17.34mm in thickness, and 94.17g in weight.

Object type: FABRICATOR
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A worked flint implement of uncertain form, possibly a fabricator or similar item, and perhaps of Mesolithic or earlier date. It is struck from a grey/brown flint that has dark red to brown patination on most surfaces, one face (ventral face?) preserving a heavily stained red/brown cortex. The object is roughly triangular in plan and cross-section, tapering to an elongated rod with blunt end that is sub-circular in cross-section. The dorsal face has relatively crude but invasive semi-abrupt flake removal, the blunt tip of the object also demonstrating multiple transverse flake scars. …

Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A bifacially worked flint handaxe of Lower Palaeolithic date. It is pointed in form, pointed oval in cross-section, and struck from a grey/brown flint that has extensive and thick orange/yellow patination that is speckled in places. Both faces have covering, low angled and scalar retouch, the dorsal face retaining an area of cortex at its centre. More recent damage has resulted in exposure of the unpatinated flint, particularly around the edges and tip of the object, and a modern breakage to one side has been repaired by the finder. This axe measures 118.03mm in length, 63.15mm in wid…

Object type: POINT
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A patinated blade point projectile of Early Upper Palaeolithic date. It is struck from a grey flint that is patinated dark yellow/orange to brown, particularly at the proximal(?) end. The blade is triangular in cross section, with parallel blade scars on the dorsal face and a hinge fracture at the distal(?) end. Both edges have limited flake removal that is perhaps the result of use wear or damage rather than deliberate retouch. At the proximal(?) end the dorsal face has invasive and low angled parallel flake removal, while the ventral face has extensive covering and scaled retouch. I…

A patinated and snapped flake, perhaps the distal end of a retouched flake. It is of possible final Upper Palaeolithic to Mesolithic date. The object is struck from a grey flint and is roughly triangular in form, oval in section, with snapped proximal end that has possible unpatinated parallel and abrupt retouch. Both faces have evidence for limited flake removal and thick patination that is orange to green/black on one face and and green/brown on the other. Around the distal end there is possible short, semi-abrupt and scaled retouch that produces a rounded point. It measures 64.07mm…

An assemblage of 82 tertiary flint blades of possible final Upper Palaeolithic to Mesolithic date. All are struck from a grey/brown flint with blue/grey patination and have a combined total weight of 582.44g. These flakes form part of a larger assemblage of flint blades, flakes, and tools, all found together on spoil excavated from a single pit during the construction of a soakaway. The complete assemblage finds close parallels to excavated long blade assemblages and industries in the surrounding landscape, most notably those recently published in the immediate vicinity at Brandon (E.…

A patinated flake, perhaps a core rejuvenation flake, of possible final Upper Palaeolithic to Mesolithic date. It is struck from a grey/brown flint with blue/grey patination, cortex remaining a long one edge. The flake has a small striking platform and bulb of percussion and is triangular in cross-section. On the dorsal face there are multiple parallel flake or blade scars struck obliquely to the striking platform and perhaps suggestive that this may be a core rejuvenation flake. The distal end has possible 'bruised' edge damage or limited crude semi-abrupt and scaled retouch. It meas…
