Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Tertiary and broad soft hammer struck flake, of off-white patinated flint with the streaks of coarse inclusions a light brown colour, all flake scars to the dorsal face are struck in the same direction as the main flake itself, the edges are damaged in antiquity and are also patinated. Possibly a piece of debitage from the mid-process of knapping a flint axe. Neolithic, 4,000 to 2350 BC.

A lower Palaeolithic flake dating to 800,000 - 250,000 BC, possibly Clactonian. The flake is sub-rectangular in shape and has a crested cross-section. This is a primary flake where the whole of the dorsal and ventral face are covered by a smooth light brown cortex with a rougher beige patina in some areas. There is short, scaled low angled retouch on both faces at the distal end, and in one corner of proximal end. The sides of the flake have short, stepped low angled retouch. Where there is retouch the cortex has been chipped away and has a light greyish brown patina, apart from one s…

An elongate secondary flake of flint produced during the process of lithic reduction. The flint is opaque, mid grey and has a low-gloss patina with areas of heavy, reddish brown ferrous staining, mainly on flake scar ridges. A small area of chalky nodular cortex remains on the distal end. The dorsal face shows flaking from at least two directions. Broad flake scars are visible across the dorsal face. The ventral face shows a large bulbar scar and 90 degree termination. Date: Neolithic 4000 BC - 2350 BC Dimensions: 91.6 mm x 53.5mm x 22.1 mm Weight: 139 g

Neolithic Flint. Secondary flake. Flake appears to be earlier than some later reuse on the distal end with some abrupt retouch which has fashioned it into an oblique-like point. Mottled browns and blues and opaque in patination except where the retouch is present, which is mid-grey and could be semi-translucent.
