Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Late Neolithic/Early Bornze Age Barbed and tanged arrowhead (incomplete). Both barbs and tang broken off from this small arrowhead. Both faces are retouched periferally, with relatively steep retouch on the dorsal face of the blank (which has a trace of residual cortex) and more shallow invasive flaking on the ventral face. The arrowhead is unpatinated and made from a brownish translucent flint. (Beaker period) 2300-1700 BC.

Object type: DAGGER
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A leaf shaped flint dagger, measuring 171mm in length, 50mm in width and 12.7mm in thickness. The tip is missing and one edge beside the tip is apparently reworked with steep edge retouch. Elsewhere there is fine all-over bifacial shallow flaking. The butt end is flatish and has a thicker cross-section than the tip half. The flint is a pale to medium grey and is atypical of the majority of local flint though reminiscent of flint axe coluring, suggesting a possible import into the area. Flint daggers were introduced as part of the so-called 'beaker package,' although Upper Palaeol…

Neolithic flint axe. Glossy flint with course grained inclusions at the butt end, patinated pale grey. Extensively polished on both faces, up to the butt end where a few residual flake scars remain. The rounded cutting edge has some damage, probably from use. The lateral edges are well rounded and lead to a smooth polished butt.

Flaked axe. Flint with extensive course grained areas, patinated a pale greyish buff. The rounded cutting edge shows evidence of heavy usage. The tapering lateral edges lead to a rounded butt, and show signs of battering. A neatly finished and symmetrical example.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Polished axe. Glossy flint with sparse course grained concretions, patinated creamy white with darker grey areas. Highly polished on both faces, especially near the rounded cutting edge which is sharp and shows litle signs of wear. The lateral edges are rounded and converge gently to a broad butt which shows signs of heavy battering and thus has a rather ragged outline. A particularly thick and heavy example with a symmetrical lenticular section.

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Small, possibly soft hammer struck tertiary scraper of unpatinated mid-grey flint with fine semi-invasive to steep retouch to almost all edges, including the platform. Small scrapers like this have been recorded from Mesolithic contexts as well as Early Bronze Age, this may be more likely to be from the the earlier period, if indeed it is soft hammer struck; there is a charictaristic lip on what remains of the ventral face of the platform, and no bulbal scar is present.

1: A thick irregular and crudely smashed and retouched worked flint, Neolithic in date. 2: An incomplete biface with all-over working. Curving body (like a sickle) with relatively crude edges and finish. Flake scars partly abraded but not stained or patinated. Flint colour of mixed greys. It is unclear if this implement is the handle part of a large crude Neolithic sickle or possibly an earlier irregular biface implement.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Polished flint axe. An unusually thin and narrow example . Flint patinated greyish white with sparse spotty iron staining. The polish is confined to a small area of the curved cutting edge, which has been damaged in antiquity, and to the lateral edges leading up to the pointed butt, which as a result has a chisel edge orthoanol to the plane of the cutting edge. Prior to polishing one of the edges has been prepared by the removal of two long narrow flakes, struck from the butt end. The chisel edge shows slight damadge, probably from use-wear.

A very regular spherical flint hammerstone with all-over, but fine, percussion scars. The regularity of this hammerstine is unusual but it is presumably still later prehistoric in date (4000-100 BC). Diameter 60.5-62.5mm and weight is 323g.
