Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Polished axe in dark grey mottled glossy flint with negligible patination. Polished extensively on one face from the broad blade up the central area to the square butt and with one lateral edge rounded slightly along its whole length, the other only toward the butt.

Record ID: SUSS-7EA0D3
Object type: AXE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: East Sussex
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A broken and badly damaged Neolithic polished flint axe. Only one of the butt ends survives, the rest of the flint has been lost. The flint is a light-whitish grey. The flint has a transverse break, with many later breaks, where further flakes have been removed (probably caused by the plough). The axe would have been finished to the 'polished axe' stage.
