Record ID: SF-5B4502
Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
An incomplete polished stone axehead of Neolithic date. It is oval in shape, bifacially polished and narrows slightly towards the butt end. This is probably a fragment from the cutting end of a larger stone implement, the original butt end now missing due to old breaks. The cutting edges themselves are slightly chipped in places, perhaps deliberately although equally the result of post-depositional damage. They are relatively blunt and abraded, as are the faces of the axe, probably partly as a result of post-depositional wear and damage. At the butt end of the fragment are a series of…

Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A polished flint axehead with narrow butt and squared sides. All-over polish with only a few former flake scars present, mainly on butt butt half of axe. Polish is coarse apart from blade end where it is fine. The surface is a mixture of mid brown and grey, possibly partial peat staining. However, one side of the cutting edge has a series of unstained flakes removed at a later date, showing a mid grey flint. These flakes look like retouch but are possibly plough damage that occurred when the axe was buried at the base of the plough line in a sub-vertical position, relatively recently.…

A complete partly polished flint axehead of Neolithic date. It is of regular, quadrilateral form with fairly straight cutting edge, with one very slight chip, and sides narrowing to slight butt. There is polish with relatively deep abrasion grooves limited mainly to the cutting edge and partly to the sides. The central portion of the axe has notable areas of gloss wihtin the flake scars. this is possibly the residues of adhesive used to fix the axe to a handle, if this is the case this is a rare occurrance on axeheads. The surface is a varied medium brown in colour and there is a rece…
