Record ID: SF-946E90
Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A small flint object, possibly a small leaf-shaped arrowhead struck on a blade. It has a mottled brown flint, with parallel blade scars on the dorsal face and limited edge retouch. The entire object measures 28.90mm in length, 14.30mm in width, 3.94mm in thickness and 1.78g in weight. This is a possible leaf-shaped arrowhead struck on a small blade. If this is indeed the case then it is likely to be of Neolithic date (c.4000-2550 BC), however is it is simply a retouched blade then an earlier Mesolithic date cannot be ruled out entirely. Dr Kevin Leahy writes: while this object has …

Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
An unpatinated and incomplete leaf-shaped lithic implement of Neolithic date. At least half of the object, including the point, is missing due to old breaks. It is struck from a grey flint that has a hinge fracture at one end, all-over bifacial retouch with flake removal and edge retouch on both faces. It measures 49.57mm in length, 24.49mm in width, 5.53mm in thickness, and weighs 6.51g. This is probably a flint 'Laurel-Leaf' point typical of the Early Neolithic period. Lithics of this form have an unknown function but are sometimes suggested as roughouts for leaf-shaped arrowheads…

A long and narrow fragment probably from the side of a Neolithic polished axehead. Measuring 67mm in length, 5mm in width and 15mm in thickness, it is roughly semi-circular in cross-section and faceted with one flat face and four others forming the arched part of the semi-circular cross-section. It has two longitudinal fractures. The remainder shows three faces which are all-over polished. This is similar to all-over polished axe heads with polished sides. It is banded dark to pale grey.

Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A somewhat crudely and heavily flaked flint axehead, complete except for slight damage to the butt. Measuring 169mm in length, 72mm in maximum width, and 37mm in maximum thickness. It has all-over deep bifacial working. It is oval in form with a slightly tapered butt. It has a cortex cutting edge with squat, heavy flake scars- possibly resulting from use damage. It has a lenticular cross-section. It has a few recent surface scars probably due to plough damage, mainly affecting the high points on one face and the butt. A medium grey flint under mottled pale to medium brown…

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A complete flaked flint axehead, measuring 159mm in length, 67.5mm in maximum width and 32mm in maximum thickness. This axehead has all-over bifacial working with controlled deep shallow flaking. There are single patches of thin off-white/pale brown cortex in the centre of each face. The butt of this axehead is tapered and the blade is almost square with a central concave hollow, possibly created through use damage. It has a lenticular cross-section. There is no trace of a polish on the axehead. A few small edge chips reveal medium to pale grey flint (possibly a patination?)…

A complete small partly polished flint axehead. The polishing is limited to the blade area and the high points along the edges. There is some notched damage to one side and on the blade (possibly recent). The blade edge has also been reflaked after polishing. The flint is a pale translucent 'honey-brown' colour on one face giving way around the periphery and opposite face to patchy pale to mid grey. Several iron grazes can be seen. The axehead is bi-convex (lenticular) in cross-section. It measures 89mm in length, 41.8mm in width and 19mm in thickness. It weighs 80g. This axeh…

An incomplete partially polished flint axehead measuring 105mm in surviving length and 56mm in surviving width, and 20mm in thickness. There is recent damage to the butt of this axehead, which has been snapped off there is a number of fresh flake scars and a few small knicks to the cutting edge. The axehead is bi-convex in cross-section with a slightly convex cutting edge. The polish is confined to the cutting edge and prominent ridges. There is only one small obvious metallic (plough?) mark on the faces, suggesting only relatively recent inclusion in the plough soil. It is staine…
