  • Thumbnail image of SWYOR-77DD10

Record ID: SWYOR-77DD10
Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Four flint flakes that are the result of flint working but that have not been worked into tools themselves. All have irregular chipped surfaces or wear which may have been caused by being on a beach at some point. It is not possible to suggest a specific date for these flakes. 1) Blade which is 63.7mm long, 25.4mm wide and 13.9mm thick. The dorsal face is very rough and irregular but there are clear removal facets on the ventral face. Speckled light grey flint. 2) Secondary flake which is 39.4mm long, 23.1mm wide and 5.4mm thick. Irregular dorsal surface. Black coloured flint. 3) Flake…

Object type: FLAKE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A secondary flint flake which is nearly heart shaped in plan. It is 32.7mm long, 24.2mm wide and 8.2mm thick. The dorsal face is partially cortical. On the left ventral side is a removal facet with evidence of platform preparation. The flint is brownish grey. The flake is not retouched. It is not possible to suggest a specific date for this flake. The flint is damaged which may be the result of water action since it was found near the sea.

Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete but highly weathered flint handaxe dating to the Lower Palaeolithic, c. 500,000-250,000 BC. It is broadly ovate in plan and sub-lenticular in section, demonstrating a reasonable degree of bi-lateral symmetry. Manufactured on a piece of flint which has now patinated a deep orangey tan colour, the butt-end of the handaxe demonstrates heavily abraded cortex, an additional small patch of which is present on one edge of the object. Both faces demonstrate covering secondary modification in the form of soft hammer removals which have served to completely remove the original support…

Record ID: SF-2899A7
Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A bifacially worked flint handaxe of Lower Palaeolithic date. It is pointed in form, pointed oval in cross-section, and struck from a grey/brown flint that has extensive and thick orange/yellow patination that is speckled in places. Both faces have covering, low angled and scalar retouch, the dorsal face retaining an area of cortex at its centre. More recent damage has resulted in exposure of the unpatinated flint, particularly around the edges and tip of the object, and a modern breakage to one side has been repaired by the finder. This axe measures 118.03mm in length, 63.15mm in wid…

County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A patinated flint 'bruised' blade of possible final Upper Palaeolithic to Mesolithic date. It is struck from a grey/brown flint with patinated blue/grey surfaces, snapped towards the distal end. The blade is trapezoidal in cross-section with small striking platform and bulb of percussion, and parallel blade scars on the dorsal face. The distal end has a hinge fracture and is patinated. Both sides have areas of 'bruised' edge damage, perhaps resultant from usage. It measures 125.16mm in length, 46.13mm in width, 17.34mm in thickness, and 94.17g in weight. This is a flint 'bruised' b…

A patinated flint blade (or fragment from a core?) of possible final Upper Palaeolithic to Mesolithic date. It is struck from a grey/brown flint with patinated blue/grey surfaces, with flattened striking platform. The dorsal face has multiple long flake or blade scars, with an area of cortex covering approximately 25% of the face. It measures 130.99mm in length, 53.22mm in width, 21.03mm in thickness, and 125.31g in weight. This is a flint blade.

A patinated flint long flake or blade of possible final Upper Palaeolithic to Mesolithic date. It is struck from a grey/brown flint with partially patinated blue/grey surfaces. The proximal end has a hinge fracture and the distal end has a small area of unpatinated semi-abrupt and scaled retouch on the ventral face.

Object type: FABRICATOR
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A worked flint implement of uncertain form, possibly a fabricator or similar item, and perhaps of Mesolithic or earlier date. It is struck from a grey/brown flint that has dark red to brown patination on most surfaces, one face (ventral face?) preserving a heavily stained red/brown cortex. The object is roughly triangular in plan and cross-section, tapering to an elongated rod with blunt end that is sub-circular in cross-section. The dorsal face has relatively crude but invasive semi-abrupt flake removal, the blunt tip of the object also demonstrating multiple transverse flake scars. …

A patinated and snapped flake, perhaps the distal end of a retouched flake. It is of possible final Upper Palaeolithic to Mesolithic date. The object is struck from a grey flint and is roughly triangular in form, oval in section, with snapped proximal end that has possible unpatinated parallel and abrupt retouch. Both faces have evidence for limited flake removal and thick patination that is orange to green/black on one face and and green/brown on the other. Around the distal end there is possible short, semi-abrupt and scaled retouch that produces a rounded point. It measures 64.07mm…

A patinated flake, perhaps a core rejuvenation flake, of possible final Upper Palaeolithic to Mesolithic date. It is struck from a grey/brown flint with grey/green/brown patination, cortex remaining at the proximal end of the dorsal face.

An assemblage of 82 tertiary flint blades of possible final Upper Palaeolithic to Mesolithic date. All are struck from a grey/brown flint with blue/grey patination and have a combined total weight of 582.44g. These flakes form part of a larger assemblage of flint blades, flakes, and tools, all found together on spoil excavated from a single pit during the construction of a soakaway. The complete assemblage finds close parallels to excavated long blade assemblages and industries in the surrounding landscape, most notably those recently published in the immediate vicinity at Brandon (E.…
