A complete flint Mesolithic tranchet axe. It is ovoid in shape; long and narrow with a slightly wider blade end. It is roughly triangular in cross-section with a raised central ridge running longitundinally across one face. The other face is much flatter. Both faces have been reshaped using invasive, scaled retouch producing large scars. A large triangular transverse 'tranchet' flake has been removed from one side of the cutting end. The flint is mottled grey with much milky patination and some orange staining from the soil. A patch of chalky cortex remains on the dorsal face. Leng…

Record ID: SF-A3DAD6
Object type: MICROLITH
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
An unpatinated struck flint flake, possibly a microlith, of Mesolithic or later date. It is struck from a mottled grey flint, is triangular in form and trapezoidal in cross section. The object has a small striking platform and bulb of percussion, with a single flake removed from the bulb. Both sides and the proximal end have limited short, abrupt and scaled retouch. It measures 27.49mm in length, 9.60mm in width, 2.74mm in thickness, and 0.52g in weight. This is possibly a flint microlith, in which case it is likely to be of Mesolithic date, c.10,000-4,000 BC.
