Record ID: NMS-90CFCC
Object type: SPEAR
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Small tertiary, hard hammer struck spear or knife-like implement, of sub-triangular plan form and of patinated dark orange/brown flint. Both lateral edges are steeply retouched on the dorsal face, the platform has been removed by steep bifacial retouch, presumably to enable hafting. Possibly middle to late Palaeolithic.

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A large flint end scraper of probable Palaeolithic or later date. The scraper is formed from a large flint flake that is light to medium grey in colour with a thick medium to dark brown iron stained surface, the grey flint visible where exposed by plough damage. It has steep edge retouching but no evidence of glacial rolling. The scraper measures 87.57mm in length, 57.95mm in width, 22.64mm in thickness, and weighs 142.97g.

Object type: POINT
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A patinated blade point projectile of Early Upper Palaeolithic date. It is struck from a grey flint that is patinated dark yellow/orange to brown, particularly at the proximal(?) end. The blade is triangular in cross section, with parallel blade scars on the dorsal face and a hinge fracture at the distal(?) end. Both edges have limited flake removal that is perhaps the result of use wear or damage rather than deliberate retouch. At the proximal(?) end the dorsal face has invasive and low angled parallel flake removal, while the ventral face has extensive covering and scaled retouch. I…

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.

Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk

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.

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.

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.

There is retouch and use wear along one edge, and there are parallel blade scars on the dorsal face. This blade probably dates to the Upper Paleolithic or Mesolithic periods. 2)an unpatinated black flake with 50% cortex, it is 36.98mm in length and 18.3mm wide, weighing 3.37g. It has parallel flake scars on the dorsal face, and is probably Neolithic or Early Bronze A…
