Record ID: SF-3F9AD8
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A knapped flint side scraper on a broken tertiary flake, scalar semi-abrupt directly applied retouch forming a rounded convex working edge. Most of the platform shattered away in old damage. Length down percussion axis: 29.05mm, 39.63mm maximum width, 9.23mm thick at its midpoint. Weight: 14.51g. The crude nature of this piece suggests Middle-Late Bronze Age manufacture, c. 1500-750 BC.

Object type: FLAKE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Two struck flint flakes of undiagnostic prehistoric date, c. 8000-1500 BC. The first is a squat tertiary piece on relatively coarse grained greyish flint, a previous hinge negative on its dorsal face and a hard-hammer bulb of percussion on its ventral face. Length down percussion axis: 40.48mm, maximum width: 31.49mm wide, thickness at midpoint: 7.16mm. Weight: 11.61g. The second, a small piece of irregular tertiary shatter on dark fine-grained blackish flint. Length down percussion axis: 35.47mm, width at midpoint: 9.5mm, thickness at midpoint: 3.96mm. Weight:1.91g.

Object type: ADZE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A knapped flint adze of probable Mesolithic to early Neolithic date, c. 8000-4000 BC. The adze is of small size, being broadly triangular in plan with a very prominent dorsal arrise running down one face. By contrast the opposing face is much flatter, though displays a large patch of cortex close to the original cutting edge-the butt of the tool also being cortical. Lateral long removals of retouch down the edges of the piece probably reflect a combination of hard and soft hammer work, an attempt at a tranchet removal (unsuccessful) seemingly visible on one face. Manufactured on a prim…

Record ID: SF-A3DA3F
Object type: CORE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A knapped flint core of probable Bronze Age date, c. 2500-1500 BC. The core is sub-rectangular in plan, demonstrating removals from both faces and sides with little apparent care for flake direction and forethought of detachment. Heavily worked down (probably representing the reason for its discard), it is now patinated a yellowy grey colour with some iron staining visible on its surfaces. Preserved in relatively fresh condition, the core measures 71.43mm in length down its longest axis, c. 56.14mm wide at its widest point and 30.8mm thick at its midpoint. It weighs 159.6g.

Record ID: SF-A3BAD0
Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete knapped flint arrowhead dating to the Early Neolithic, c. 4000-3000 BC. This is a leaf-shaped example, being broadly lenticular in plan with a widened butt and tapering sides that converge to form a sharp point. Manufactured on a tertiary flake of dark brownish black flint, the arrowhead demonstrates invasive retouch (pressure flaking) on both faces-though this has not removed all of the original flaked surface. Preserved in fresh condition, it measures 31.4mm in length, 14.83mm wide at its widest point, 2.66mm thick at its midpoint and weighs 1.74g.

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete knapped flint end scraper of probable Late Neolithic to Middle Bronze Age date, c. 3000-1500 BC. Manufactured on a tertiary flake of translucent brownish fine-grained flint with only a small patch of cortex on its dorsal surface, the support has had its proximal end intentionally removed. The scraper is effectively horseshoe shaped, a single dorsal arrise visible and secondary working (in the form of directly applied parallel long removals) creating a convex working edge at the distal end of the piece. Preserved in fresh condition it measures 38.59mm in length down its axis …

Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete knapped flint arrowhead dating to the later Neolithic, c. 3300-2400 BC. It is broadly triangular in plan, one edge straight and the other slightly angled, converging to its point (now missing). At the base of the arrowhead is a rather stubby tang, slightly damaged where it connects with the straight edge of the arrowhead. On the opposite side of the tang, a shallow curving notch is visible. Manufactured on a tertiary flake of bluish white patinated flint, the straight edge demonstrates directly applied pressure flaked long removals extending up its entire edge, the angled ed…
