Record ID: SF6869
Object type: ADZE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Flint adze, relatively crude, with roughly plano-convex cross-section. Made from poor quality flint (in places cherty) with a blotchy pale and medium brown colour. Cortex survives on the convex face and unknapped flint survives in the centre of the flatter side. The blade edges (either end could function as a blade) are radially flaked and relatively straight. The form of the adze is similar to some Mesolithic tranchet adzes (although it lacks a tranchet edge); though the crudeness may suggest that it is a later (Neolithic) roughout for an axe or adze.

A complete flint Mesolithic adze, measuring 145mm in length, 49mm in maximum width and 33mm in thickness. This adze has been transversely sharpened. It has a relatively flat underside and a centrally ridged back on its topside. The flint is pale to medium off white/grey in colour. There is a very similar adze from Little Dunham, Norfolk.

A patinated flint adze of Mesolithic date. It is triangular in form, bifacially worked with a crescentic cutting edge that has limited edge retouch and some cortex and iron staining on both faces. The object is struck from a dark grey/black flint and measures 75.26mm in length, 32.19mm in width, 19.05mm in thickness and 46.39g in weight. This is a Mesolithic adze dating to c.8,300-4,500 BC.

Record ID: SF-5DD878
Object type: ADZE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A patinated or stained struck flint adze of Mesolithic date. It is triangular in section with a slightly curved profile and has all over bifacial flake removal. The blade end is rectangular in form with transverse flake removal and limited retouch. The entire object has a stained or patinated mottled grey/brown surface and measures 155mm in length, 47.44mm in width, 26.19mm in thickness and 233.20g in weight. The form of this object suggests it is probably an adze rather than a tranchet axe, and of Mesolithic date, c.10,000-4000 BC.

A complete knapped flint adze dating to the Mesolithic period, c. 8000-4000 BC. It is broadly lenticular in plan and plano-convex in section, with a slightly tapered butt, expanded sides, rectilinear cutting edge and flattened underside. Manufactured originally from a large piece of blackish brown flint with some green and yellow mottling, it has been bifacially worked- both faces demonstrate highly invasive removals that have removed practically all of the original flake surfaces, though those on the underside of the adze are thinner, wider and low-angle, suggestive of preferential u…

County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete flint late Mesolithic to early Neolithic probable adze. It is largely straight-sided (although both sides curved outwards very slightly), tapering slightly towards one end, with rounded ends and an irregular flattened lozenge-shaped cross-section. There is invasive, scaled flaking on both faces and a possible attempt at a tranchet flake removal from one face of the cutting edge. There is some damage around the butt end and a small section missing here. There is also a notch caused by damage to the blade ned. The flint is a mid-grey in colour with slight patination on one…

There is invasive, scaled flaking on both faces and a possible attempt at a tranchet flake removal from one face of the cutting edge. There is some damage around the butt end and possibly a small section missing here. The flint is a mid-grey in colour with slight patination and some orange staining in places. The presence of a potential tranchet flake suggests that this example may be of late Me…

County: Essex

A complete flint adze of the Mesolithic to early Neolithic period, dating to 9500 BC-4000 BC. It is oval in plan and tapers towards one end; it has a roughly lozange-shaped cross-section. The tapered end bears the beige cortex surviving (7%). The dorsal surface has a longitudinal median ridge, which forks close to the flaring end. Both the surfaces have multi-directional negative scars. The edges have traces of further retouches and old breaks. The surfaces have a greyish white patina which covers the mottled grey core. Frequent iron stains cover the surfaces. Cf Butler (2005, p. 104,…

A complete partially polished flint adze dating to the Neolithic period, c. 4000-2500 BC. Under Clough's axe schema (Clough et al 1979), the piece corresponds his type E, 'D-sectioned' pieces. The adze has been manufactured on a piece of unpatinated greyish flint with mottled brown and black patches, originally by knapping a roughout and then by intensive grinding and polishing localised to the cutting edge and bottom third of the object. It is broadly sub-rectangular in form and plano-convex in section, with a squared off butt, slightly convex cutting edge, strongly curving section, a…

A complete knapped flint adze dating to the Mesolithic period, c. 8000-4000 BC. The adze is broadly sub-rectangular in form and 'D' shaped in section, with a slightly rounded 'crested' outer surface and flattened inner face. It has been manufactured on raw material of an uncertain colour, which is now extremely heavily weathered with a deep brown mottled patina. The adze has been bifacially worked, with invasive hard-hammer and soft-hammer removals visible on both faces, with the result that very little of the original support surface survives. The butt is pointed and slightly rounded,…

An incomplete flint Mesolithic tranchet axe or Neolithic flaked adze. It is trapezoidal in shape, expanding slightly towards the damaged end and roughly triangular in cross-section with a raised ridge running longitudinally down the centre of one face. There is a rough break across one end where a section is missing. There is invasive, scaled retouch on both faces, but this is less extensive on the flatter face. The flint is dark brown in colour with some orange staining and very little patination. A very small amount of cortex survives on both faces. Because of damage it cannot be ce…
