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.

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…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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…

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.

three prehistoric flint tools. 1) a deep brown patinated flint blade, with limited end retouch and slightly notched. It is 52.4mm in length and 18.80mm wide, broadening out to 31mm in width at the base. It weighs 7.36g. 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…

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.

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.
