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…

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…

Record ID: SF-3EC884
Object type: CORE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A large flint blade core of possible Upper Palaeolithic or Mesolithic date. It is struck from a mottled dark brown flint that has had the exterior surfaces removed from all faces with the exception of traces of cortex on one side. It is now roughly square in section and rectangular in form, tapering towards one end. The core has two opposed striking platforms and one face has multiple long blade scars. It measures 132.61mm in length, 70.52mm in width, 70.66mm in thickness, and weighs 859g. This is a large blade core of probable Upper Palaeolithic to early Mesolithic date, c.80,000-6.500 BC.

A flint laurel leaf blade, probably of Neolithic, or possibly earlier, date. It is struck from a grey/brown flint that has a mottled orange/white patina. The object is ovoid in form, biconvex in section and bifacially worked, narrowing at one end but seemingly complete. Both faces have shallow but well controlled retouch formed from relatively large, shallow flakes with limited edge retouch at both ends and in areas of the sides/edges. It measures 133.48mm in length, 58.99mm in width, 14.10mm in thickness, and weighs 119.52g. The form of this object suggest it is probably a dagger …

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.

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…

A flint handaxe of lower Palaeolithic date, complete apart from a single flake removed from the base of one edge. It is pointed and sub-triangular and is only slightly rolled, though possibly partly through beach action. The rounded butt end has cortex remaining on part of it. The flint is irregularly stained with mixed pale to dark browns over varied pale to dark grey flint, which is exposed by the detached flake.

Record ID: SF-B8D7C6
Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A unifacial plano-convex handaxe made on a large flake which remains without further retouch on the bulbous face. There is extensive all-over heavy flaking on the dorsal face. The flint is a motled brown due to staining, the surface is relatively glossy and the flake edges are all slightly rounded suggesting either rolling or wind/water abrasion. This handaxe is Lower Palaeolithic in date. Dr Kevin Leahy adds: the unifacial form of this implement suggests that it was made using the Levallois technique which would allow it to be placed in the Middle Palaeolithic.

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.

County: Suffolk

Thin biface, slightly rolled. Slightly asymmetric with one side relatively thick and blunt, suggesting knife type implement rather than laurel leaf. Good quality all-over shallow flaking. Some patination and staining. This is difficult to date because of its rolled condition. This and its colouring gives it a Palaeolithic appearance though it could equally well be of Neolithic or Bronze Age 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.

An irregular flint flake, measuring 64mm in length and 31mm in width at its widest point, it is 8mm in thickness. It has been retouched at a later date along most edges, which includes a notch, there is a possiblility however that this 'retouch' could in fact be modern plough damage. The flake has a mottled blue/white and medium brown patina. However, the underlying flint colour, as exposed by the possible retouch is a deep chocolate brown, similar to SF-8e8c86, Sf-8eb0a3, and SF-8ede62, which were discovered in the same area. It is probably late Upper Paleolithic or earlier to Mes…

A pointed oval shaped lithic implement measuring 145mm in length, 48mm in width and 12mm in thickness. A dark grey/black flint has been revealed by modern chips beneath a medium and dark brown staining, possibly from exposture in river deposits. Bifacial all over soft hammer flaking is present. The tip is not sharp and in relatively freah condition. It is very similar to Upper Paleolithic solutrean points but could also be early Bronze Age or Beaker period in date. C.Pendleton suggests checking with other experts, especially those interested in Upper Paleolithic industries, eg Rog…
