Record ID: CORN-DA2A19
Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A ficron hand axe of the Acheulean tradition, dating from the Lower Palaeolithic period, originally from the collection of Roy Rainbird Clarke (1914-1963). In plan, the axe is triangular with concave sides, typical of the ficron style of hand axe (Wymer, Mode 2, Type M). Made on a flint nodule the flint has been flaked to remove most of the cortex, except for a large patch at the butt end, producing a tapering axe which is lozenge-shaped in section. The narrow tip has been finely flaked to a point. The surface of the flint is coated with a thick, silky patina which has become a deep or…

County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint bifacial ovate hand axe dating from the Lower Palaeolithic period, originally from the collection of Roy Rainbird Clarke (1914-1963). The hand axe belongs to the Acheulean tradition and is classified by Wymer (1999) as Mode 2, Type K on page 11, fig.4. Made on a large flint flake which has been worked by the removal of flakes around the circumference of the flake to produce a roughout, followed by thinning using a soft hammer to remove shallow flakes from both faces, removing all traces of the original flint cortex. The domed dorsal face has been finished by the removal of a se…

Record ID: CORN-3B7A82
Object type: FLAKE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Chert flake, semi-circular in plan, rectangular in profile and section, which appears to be a struck piece but with no secondary working. There is a notch half way down the right margin of the ventral face, which may have been used as a graver, but may also be accidental. The profile of the flake suggests it may have been a core tablet or a core platform rejuvenation flake, as it has several straight sides which could the beginning of flakes taken off this original platform. The flake is very water worn so that it is difficult to identify the material (Rosemary Stewart pers comm). The…

Record ID: CORN-7A7604
Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Large flint flake worked into a side scraper, semi-circular in plan, lozenge-shaped in profile and triangular in section. The scraper has a denticulated edge that runs along the right side of the ventral face and around to the distal tip of the flake. The same edge on the dorsal face has been frost-fractured and damaged to appear like reworking, but has only been worked at the proximal end. Most of the dorsal face is still covered in cortex. The flint is a mottled light to dark grey colour and looks to have come from a nodule of flint, rather than a beach pebble, which may have been…
