Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Ovate handaxe, broken at one end in antiquity. Glossy red/brown stained flint with a large number of coarse-grained inclusions. An old but thinly patinated chip indicates that the flint is probably pale grey in colour. One face is flaked all over; the opposed face is more than 50% cortex, which is thick but weathered, of a buff colour with black speckled staining. Dimensions: 124 mm surviving length, 85 mm wide and 30 mm thick. Condition: lightly rolled. Wymer does not list any Palaeolithic material from the immediate area, but gives examples of handaxes from Belton Common and Hopton-…

A complete flint flake from a large core, or possibly from the edge of a large hand-axe. It is roughly oval in shape and measures 82mm in length, 51mm in width and is 17mm thick. There is one recent break exposing a medium to dark grey flint but the rest of this flake is stained with blotchy pale, medium and dark browns. This flake is most likely to be lower Palaeolithic in date.

A pointed oval shaped lithic implement measuring 145mm in length, 48mm in width and 12mm in thickness. A dark grey/black flint has been revealed by modern chips beneath a medium and dark brown staining, possibly from exposture in river deposits. Bifacial all over soft hammer flaking is present. The tip is not sharp and in relatively freah condition. It is very similar to Upper Paleolithic solutrean points but could also be early Bronze Age or Beaker period in date. C.Pendleton suggests checking with other experts, especially those interested in Upper Paleolithic industries, eg Rog…

An irregular flint flake, measuring 64mm in length and 31mm in width at its widest point, it is 8mm in thickness. It has been retouched at a later date along most edges, which includes a notch, there is a possiblility however that this 'retouch' could in fact be modern plough damage. The flake has a mottled blue/white and medium brown patina. However, the underlying flint colour, as exposed by the possible retouch is a deep chocolate brown, similar to SF-8e8c86, Sf-8eb0a3, and SF-8ede62, which were discovered in the same area. It is probably late Upper Paleolithic or earlier to Mes…
