Record ID: SF-528FA4
Object type: ANIMAL REMAINS
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A fragment of an antler, incomplete due to old breaks at both ends. It measures 72mm in length and 28mm in width with a thickness of 14mm. This antler fragment does not appear to have been worked and is likely to just be a stray loss, however, it could be a by product of antler working, or have been lost before it was worked. Therefore it is recorded in case any other antler fragments worked or otherwise are found on this site in the future.

Object type: WEAVING IMPLEMENT
Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A complete bone probable weaving implement. It is 95.96mm in length, c10.99mm in width and 6.94mm thick. Both terminals are rounded/blunt and the whole object has been polished smooth. The slightly wider rounded end (11.36mm in width) has a central circular perforation, measuring 4.92mm in diameter. The terminal end tapers slightly and is 8.21mm in width at its tip. No exact parallel could be found for this probable weaving implement, however, it could date from the Anglo-Saxon period onwards. It is most likely to have been used for weaving owing to its blunt rounded terminal.

Record ID: SF-DDDA16
Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A worked bone unidentified object, rectangular in shape with a length of 72mm and width of 12mm. One face of this object has a row of cross shaped grooves along it, the crosses become larger as the bone flares outwards. At the widest end, after the largest cross shape there is a semi-circular depression, resembling a socket of some kind with circumference grooves within it. It measures 8mm in diameter and 5mm in depth. This object may possibly be the arm of a doll, or a handle of some kind, and is likely to be late Medieval or Post medieval in date. No parallel could be found.

Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk

Unidentified object made from bone, ivory or antler, with ring-and-dot decoration. It is biconvex in cross-section, with one face being slightly more curved than the other. One end is basically rectangular, 32.5 x 27 mm, and each long side of this rectangle has a central V-shaped cut-out flanked by semi-circular cut-outs. Each face is decorated with 19-20 unevenly spaced ring-and-dot motifs. One corner is certainly complete; from this, a long rod extends parallel to the long edge of the rectangle, increasing the length of the object to 85 mm. The rod is 6 mm wide, and is mainly pa…

Object type: UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Unidentified object, perhaps a pendant, made from bone, antler or walrus ivory (it is not elephant ivory). The pendant is openwork and composed of elegant curves. In the centre is an S shape, tapering slightly at the bottom and more strongly at the top. At the bottom the S ends in a crescentic 'tail'; at the top is a circular disc, perhaps a head, with a large central circular groove which may represent an eye. On the edge of this disc is a broken perforation, perhaps a suspension loop. From out of the upper curve of the S come two C shapes, which together can be seen as another S …

Record ID: SF6517
Object type: POINT
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Bone point made from the proximal half of the right metatarsal (hind leg bone) of an adult bovid (i.e. a cow, bull etc). The bone has been split about halfway down the shaft (diaphysis) and shaped into a point. There are clear signs of cutting and scraping of the bone to shape it on all sides, and the front has been cut at a sharper angle to form the point. The pointed end has acquired a gloss, probably through a combination of handling and use. The tip has a facet cut across at a slight angle; the facet is smooth, and was possibly caused by impact and then subsequent handling/use.…
