Record ID: NMS-468093
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Neolithic to Early Bronze Age flint scraper dating to the period c. 4000 - 2351 BC. Tertiary flake, no cortex remains. The dorsal surface exhibits five sub-parallel flake scars. The ventral surface has a high bulb of percussion with tightly spaced conchoidal ripple marks and a bulbar scar. The distal end an both mesal edge exhibit some evidence of retouch, however, this has been largely removed or obscured by later edge damage.

Record ID: NMS-4907FE
Object type: CORE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Small core, of unpatinated dark grey flint with thin, worn cortex to the back or unworked portion. Made from a cylindrical projection from a larger nodule, the platform is formed by a hard hammer transverse blow across the projection (or "pap" or knob cf. Skertchley 1879 fig. 2 page 7), thin blade-like flakes are also hard hammer struck from the platform angles that will allow flake removals until a flaw in the flint and the small size of the core limited the striking of more useful flakes. Late Prehistoric, Neolithic or Bronze Age. 4,000 to 700 BC.

Object type: BLADE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Tertiary, soft hammer struck blade, of pale grey patinated flint, recent damage to both lateral edges reveal that the flint was originally black, other than that, the edges appear to be without retouch. The distal end (on the dorsal face) has a small flake scar running 180 degrees to the direction of the main blow to remove this blade, an indication that this was struck from an opposed platform core. The platform is abraded to help with the detachment of the blade, so it is likely, although a little short, that this blade is Late (final) Upper Palaeolothic in date, 12,000 to 10,000 BC.

Tertiary, soft hammer struck flake, of unpatinated mottled grey flint, a slight notch to one side of the distal end and fine damage or use-wear to the opposite edge appears to be deliberate retouch. Neolithic to Bronze Age, 4,000 to 701 BC.

Object type: BLADE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Tertiary struck small blade of white patinated flint, bulb of percussion removed, and the dorsal face has, on one side, flake scars removed at 90 degrees to the direction of the blade, this is due to being struck from a multi-platform core, both lateral edges are irregularly damaged. Although it is small, this is not a direct indication of being Mesolithic, also being struck from a multi-platform core could be an indication of a latter date; most likely Neolithic or Bronze Age, 4,000 to 701 BC.

Primary, hard hammer struck flake, of dark grey flint unpatinated flint with thin, weathered cortex, with steep retouch to the distal end and round both lateral sides up to the platform; standard "horse-shoe" shape. Neolithic to Bronze Age, 4,000 to 700 BC.

Tertiary, soft hammer struck blade from a single platform core, of matt mottled grey flint with a few iron scrapes to both faces , Both the distal and proximal end are broken transversely, there is a small semi-circular notch (c.5 mm) to the steeper angled side, just above the break to the distal end. Early Neolithic, 4,000 to 3,000 BC though it is a possibility that this is a fragment of a long blade of Late Upper Palaeolithic date, 12,000 to 10,000 BC.

Small frost fractured cylinder of unpatinated mottled grey flint with flakes struck centripetally where angles allow, mainly from the broader end, only one is from the small end and this could well be post-depositional damage, all flakes scars appear to be hard hammer struck. Neolithic to Bronze Age, 4,000 to 700 BC.

Early Neolithic retouched flint flake dating to the period c. 4000 - 3001 BC. Tertiary flake, nor cortex remains. The dorsal side exhibits two parallel flake scars, with a third underneath.

Object type: ADZE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Transversely broken cutting edge of a Neolithic adze. Of plano-convex section and of unpatinated mottled grey flint. The break is just behind the cutting edge and hinges over on the dorsal face and has produced a series of "fluted" flake scars that terminate in step fractures just short of the edge, this type of break is frequently encountered on flint axes as well as adzes and is usually an indication of failure of the flint under stress during usage, otherwise known as a transverse bending fracture.
