Record ID: NMS-F8C2DE
Object type: PERFORATED OBJECT
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Perforated "mace-head", from a modified water-worn pebble of an unidentified brown banded stone, probably a glacial erratic. The perforation is slightly off-centre, and of hourglass section, the hole is pecked, and of pointed oval shape, this is due to a weaker band of stone, perforation is 8.5 x 7 mm. Surface diameter is 18.5 x 17, and on the other face it is: 16.5 x 16 mm. The smaller end of the pebble is slightly battered, presumably from use. See NMGW-A2477F for a larger example, made of Dolerite and a discussion as to the possible function of these enigmatic objects.

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Northamptonshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete flint Scraper of Mesolithic to Neolithic date (9000-1500 BC). The lithic is sub-rectangular in plan, tapers in toward the distal end, and plano-convex in section. The dorsal surface has short parallel flaking to the left and eight hand edges. The proximal edge has been abruptly blunted while the distal end tapers to a point. All edges with the exception of the blunted proximal edge have fine semi-abrupt retouch. The ventral surface is predominantly flat with a single negative scar situated at the proximal end, exposing some calcite inclusions, above which is a small bulb of …

County: Isle of Wight
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete Mesolithic (probably) flint blade (c. 10000 BC-c. 4001 BC). The proximal end of this tertiary blade has been lost due to a transverse break. Consequently, the bulb of percussion is not present. The dorsal face has three longitudinal removals. A flake scar on the ventral face appears to be recent damage. This translucent blade is off-white, light grey and orange. Length: 20.8mm; width: 9.1mm; thickness: 1.8mm. Weight: 0.47g.
