Record ID: NMS-905D34
Object type: AXEHEAD ROUGHOUT
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Small, asymmetrical biface, all flake removals are hard hammer struck, of orange patinated flint, with some recent damage to both ends and one side revealing the original mottled grey flint. Possibly a trial piece or reject of an attempt at an axe or adze. No tranchet flake removal to the "cutting" edge noted. With no diagnostic features, a broad date range of Mesolithic to Neolithic is likely.
