Record ID: SF4142
Object type: HANDAXE
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 large thick flint with recent damage to one face. The opposite face has variegated staining (like the Palaeolithic assemblage from Maidcross Hill) and considerable battering with some possible deliberate flake scars. It is possibly lower Paleolithic in date.

A heavily stained medium brown abraded worked flint blade. Measuring 88mm in length and 23mm in width this blade has extensive recent damage exposing a plae grey flint beneath the patina. It is most likely to have been either water abraded or a glacial erratic. It is Palaeolithic in date.

A worked flint implement. A smallish flake with six flake scars on the dorsal face. Possibly with retouch along one edge, though this could be damage. It is stained and rolled, presumably glacially derived and of lower Palaeolithic date.

A flint single edged biface which is relatively crude. Although there is no obvious staining or patination, this flint could possibly be a Palaeolithic chopper-like tool. It is sub rectangular in form, has three sides of cortex, two-thirds of one face are also cortex and the final face is mainly a large pot-lid fracture.

Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A flint handaxe in sharp condition with all-over shallow bifacial retouch, very unifrom slightly pointed oval in shape. Unpatinated or stained and a dark brown/black flint with one plae grey patch near the tip. Length 99mm, width 77mm and maximum thickness is 24mm. This axe looks like a relatively recent product, however no obvious recent flake scar marks are visible, so it has probably been buried for some time. None-the-less its discovered position, only 15cm deep, suggests a re-deposition from an unknown context. It could therefore be modern and in the form of a middle Palaeolith…

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…

A partially patinated flint blade of possible final Upper Palaeolithic to Mesolithic date. It is struck from a grey/brown flint with patinated blue/grey surfaces, particularly evident on the ventral face. The proximal end has a small striking platform and bulb of percussion. It is triangular in cross section with parallel flake scars on the dorsal face that extend towards the centre of the blade where there is a small area of cortex and additional flake or blade scars at an angle of 90 degrees. This perhaps suggests re-use of a core, or that this blade is a core rejuvination flake. On…

Small flint bifacially worked axe, mottled mid to dark grey flint. Length 85mm, width 65mm, thickness 25mm. Seen by N Barton, British Museum who commented on the small size (one of the Ipswich pits may have produced similar handaxes?) and agreed with the identification.

Two lithic implments, the first is a flake which is patinated and partially stained medium brown with slight retouch or use wear and is prehistoric in date. The second is a snapped long blade with steep edge retouch on one edge and relatively crude retouch on the other, shallower edge. It is sub-triangular in cross-section. The flint is grey and deeply stained medium and dark rusty brown this example is probably Upper Palaeolithic in date.
