County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete flint scraper of probable Neolithic to early Bronze Age date. A long, narrow tertiary flake with an abrupt transverse break across the centre as a result of which the proximal end is now missing. The flint is a light brown colour with heavy orange staining on both faces. There is long, semi-abrupt, scaled retouch across the left edge of the distal end of the dorsal face. This retouch is slightly less stained suggesting it may be a later addition to an older flake. There is no staining within the central break suggesting it is a recent occurrence. Length: 53.08g, width: …

County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete knapped lithic implement of Neolithic date, circa 4000 - 2300 BC. The implement is a scraper, designed to be held between the thumb and forefinger, formed from a secondary flake which is sub-ovate in plan and D-shaped in section. The ventral surface is smooth and displays a striking platform and prominent bulb of percussion. No cortex remains. The bottom two-thirds of the flake, below the bulb of percussion, has scaled and abrupt retouch, providing a large working surface. The flint is attractively striped in three shades of grey, with an additional patch of very pale grey …

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.

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 …
