Record ID: SF-296D07
Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete flint lower to middle paleolithic cordate handaxe. It is leaf-shaped and roughly planoconvex in cross-section. Both faces are covered with shallow, invasive flaking and there are further patches of sub-parallel, long, low angle retouch along the edges on both faces. The flint is dark brown in colour with a glossy patina and there are patches of a hard silty deposit on one face. It survives in remarkably fine condition with fairly sharp edges and minimal damage. Length: 146.34mm, width: 92.90mm, thickness: 28.73mm, weight: 408g

Record ID: SF-999497
Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A ?complete flint implement of probable palaeolithic date. It is large, roughly oval in shape and triangular in cross-section. Cortex still covers part of the dorsal face. There is a lot of damage around all sides of the butt end and the bulb of percussion is not visible. There are a few long, thin flaking scars at the distal end of the dorsal face and a small amount of irregular retouch around this edge, but this is crude and as such the object is difficult to classify as a formal tool type. All faces are covered in an orange patina as a probable result of deposition in river gravels…

Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A ?complete flint implement of probable palaeolithic date. It is a large natural flake, roughly triangular in shape, but there appears to be a some irregular, short, abrupt retouch along two of the sides. This is very crude and as such the object is difficult to classify as a formal tool type. The majority of both faces is covered in an orange patina as a probable result of deposition in river gravels, suggesting a palaeolithic date, but one end has a milky grey patina probably from where it was in contact with a different type of deposit. Length: 74.86mm, width: 68.39mm, thickness…

Record ID: SOM-B0E148
Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Lithic implement described as 'a small, incomplete Acheulean handaxe dating to the Lower Paleolithic. Bifacially worked on a tertiary flake. The axe appears to have been roughly heart-shaped originally, with a rounded butt, curving inwards slightly, and a slightly pointed tip at the opposite end. A curved section is missing from one side of the tip. This appears to have occured following deposition as the edges of the break are still sharp. Both faces are largely covered with flaking scars. There is further finer, but irregular, retouch to some of the edges. Both faces have become smo…
