  • Thumbnail image of SF-999497

Record ID: SF-999497
Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A ?complete flint implement of probable palaeolithic date. It is large, roughly oval in shape and triangular in cross-section. Cortex still covers part of the dorsal face. There is a lot of damage around all sides of the butt end and the bulb of percussion is not visible. There are a few long, thin flaking scars at the distal end of the dorsal face and a small amount of irregular retouch around this edge, but this is crude and as such the object is difficult to classify as a formal tool type. All faces are covered in an orange patina as a probable result of deposition in river gravels…

A ?complete flint implement of probable palaeolithic date. It is a large natural flake, roughly triangular in shape, but there appears to be a some irregular, short, abrupt retouch along two of the sides. This is very crude and as such the object is difficult to classify as a formal tool type. The majority of both faces is covered in an orange patina as a probable result of deposition in river gravels, suggesting a palaeolithic date, but one end has a milky grey patina probably from where it was in contact with a different type of deposit. Length: 74.86mm, width: 68.39mm, thickness…

A patinated and re-used lithic implement of Upper Palaolithic or later date. One face has a patination that is dark red to orange/brown in colour with extensive flake removal. At a later date the object appears to have been re-used resulting in the opposite face being removed and revealing the unpatinated dark grey flint at the core of the object, with relatively neat edge retouch along one side and some possibly flake removal at one end (distal end?). The entire object measures 119.85mm in length, 93.68mm in width, 30.31mm in thickness and 406g in weight. The patination on the orig…

An incomplete but large flint blade of Upper Palaeolithic to Neolithic date. It has a dark brown or grey flint that has been stained a variety of browns possibly due to deposition in a peaty soil. The blade is snapped at both ends, one of the breaks being modern and the other ancient, and has bifacial edge retouch. It measures 149.78mm in length, 52.40mm in width, 22.06mm in thickness, and weighs 153.15g.

A short patinated worked flint flake of probable Palaeolithic date. It has some orange/red staining and a prominent striking platform but apparently no bulb of percussion, although this may have been removed as parallel flake scars are visible on one face. It has limited edge retouch and measures 44.69mm in length, 39.43mm in width, 10.01mm in thickness, and weighs 20.87g.

The butt end of an ovate or pointed hand-axe of Lower Palaeolithic date. The flint is dark grey in colour and has deep medium brown coloured staining on the surfaces and on the breaks, suggesting that the breaks are ancient. It has fine, shallow bifacial flaking on all surfaces leaving just three small areas of cortex visible. There is little evidence of rolling and no evidence of ploughmarks suggesting recent disturbance. The axe measures 96.31mm in length, 79.55mm in width, 30.35mm in thickness, and weighs 221.86g. This fragment is of Lower Palaeolithic date from between c.700,000 an…

Relatively heavily patinated thick flint biface which appears to have been 'rolled.' Oval in form with S-shaped side profile on one side. Probably Lower or middle Palaeolithic, ie 40,000-700,000 BC, but possibly re-deposited after re-use during the mesolithic or some later preiod.

46 flint lithic implements, listed below by finders reference number. It s a mixed date assemblage, with a Mesolithic/Neolithic content and probably a later Bronze Age or even Iron Age element, i.e; c. 1600-200 BC, interesting re-use of smoe patinated pieces, e.g nos, 31 and 35. 4: Large unpatinated possibly natural flake with edge damage. 5: Patinated and stained long flake, possibly palaeolithic. 6: Patinated long flake with later unapatinated retouch along one edge, Mesolithic/Neolithic and Bronze Age. 7: Unpatinated long flake with crude edge retouch, later prehistori…
