A complete flint side and end scraper of probable Neolithic to early Bronze Age date. A sub-triangular, tertiary flake. It is finely worked with sub-parallel and scaled, long, low-angle to semi-abrupt retouch along all edges of the dorsal face. There is an additional small patch of scaled, invasive, low angle retouch to the left of the bulb on the ventral face. The flint is a translucent light brown colour and there is mottled patination covering the dorsal face only. Produced using a semi-hard hammer.

An incomplete flint scraper of probable Neolithic to early Bronze Age date. A long, narrow tertiary flake with an abrupt transverse break across the centre as a result of which the proximal end is now missing. The flint is a light brown colour with heavy orange staining on both faces. There is long, semi-abrupt, scaled retouch across the left edge of the distal end of the dorsal face. This retouch is slightly less stained suggesting it may be a later addition to an older flake. There is no staining within the central break suggesting it is a recent occurrence.

A complete knapped flint arrowhead dating to the Early Neolithic, c. 4000-3000 BC. This is a leaf-shaped example, being broadly lenticular in plan with a widened butt and tapering sides that converge to form a sharp point. Manufactured on a tertiary flake of dark brownish black flint, the arrowhead demonstrates invasive retouch (pressure flaking) on both faces-though this has not removed all of the original flaked surface. Preserved in fresh condition, it measures 31.4mm in length, 14.83mm wide at its widest point, 2.66mm thick at its midpoint and weighs 1.74g.

The ventral face has been worked inversely, with large invasive removals (perhaps soft hammer) creating a rather crude edge. A notch is visible in the opposing edge, though whether this is a knapped feature or simply edge damage remains unclear. Preserved in somewhat patinated…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete knapped and polished flint axehead dating to the Neolithic period, c. 4000-2500 BC. The butt and midsection are missing in an oblique patinated break, with only the lower body and cutting edge preserved extant. Deep negative flaking on both sides of the axe close to this break suggests this may have resulted from use. Demonstrating a rectangular section and slightly expanding flat sides, the axe has been manufactured on a piece of greyish flint which has now in places patinated to an off-white mottled with blue. Considerable iron staining on both faces marks the location …

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete polished flint axehead dating to the Neolithic period, c. 4000-2500 BC. It survives relatively intact despite some damage to the cutting edge and extensive breakage to the butt, the latter possibly relating to hafting and subsequent use. In form, it demonstrates characteristic gently expanding sides with a broadly lenticular section, that transition into a convex cutting edge. Manufactured on a fine-grained piece of mottled light greyish flint, the surfaces of the axe are completely smooth and polished-with all removal scars and primary reduction negatives obliterated. Li…

Record ID: SF-10DD98
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete knapped flint side-and-end-scraper of probable late Neolithic to Bronze Age date (c. 3000-1150 BC). It has been manufactured on a secondary flake of mid brown 'tan' coloured flint, with a pale off-white cortex still covering c. 30% of the dorsal surface. It is broadly circular in plan, demonstrating a sub-lenticular cortical platform with a prominent cone of percussion suggestive of hard-hammer detachment as regarding the original support. Semi-abruptly angled short retouch removals are visible around virtually the entire circumference of the piece (excepting the platform)…

Object type: FLAKE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A broken knapped tertiary flint flake of probable later Prehistoric date, c. 4500-1150 BC. Struck from a core of mottled tan and grey coloured flint, the flake is missing its proximal end, terminating in a hinge fracture at its distal end. Preserved in fresh condition, it survives to a length of 43.71mm, 35.62mm wide at its midpoint, and 3.30mm thick at its midpoint. It weighs 8.08g.

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A virtually complete knapped flint scraper of probable Late Neolithic to Middle Bronze Age date, c. 3000-1500 BC. It is broadly oval in plan and plano-convex in section, manufactured on a tertiary flake of dark blackish flint which now demonstrates a speckled bluish patina in places interspersed with post-depositional iron staining. The platform is plain and relatively small, with a medium sized step fracture directly below it on the dorsal surface. The lateral and distal edges of the scraper demonstrate secondary modification in the form of directly applied scalar retouch which creat…
