Record ID: NMS-FA8D28
Object type: BLADE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Secondary, hard hammer struck blade-flake, of unpatinated glossy brown flint with thick cortex to the left side of the dorsal face when viewed with the (faceted) platform uppermost, the distal end is broken by a transverse bending fracture, now steeply retouched or worn from use as a scraping edge. The right lateral edge is also steeply retouched along its entire length, presumably used as a side scraper.

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.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Tertiary, hard hammer struck flake, of mostly unpatinated semi-translucent brown flint, with slight, patchy pale discolourations to both faces, with two steeply retouched notches to each lateral edge (four in total) of differing diameters and profiles, the broad distal end is semi-invasively retouched to the dorsal face to form a chisel-like end.

Object type: PLANO CONVEX KNIFE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Possible plano-convex or discoidal knife of unusual form, a secondary, hard hammer struck flake with previous centripetal flake removals to the dorsal face. Of dark brown patinated flint, bulb removed by semi-invasive direct percussion struck from the dorsal face. One lateral edge is invasively retouched only on the dorsal face with seven flake scars (by pressure-flaking?), this is restricted to a natural projection of the "blank" flake.

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Secondary, hard hammer struck flake, of yellowish patinated mottled grey flint, unusually, the proximal end is steeply retouched to form the scraping edge, removing the bulb in the process. One lateral edge is broadly concave, but appears to be recently damaged, the distal end is retouched to form an angled, beak-like small scraping edge.

County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Secondary, discoidal core, of unpatinated grey and black mottled flint, a small patch of cortex remains to the dorsal face, with bifacial, centripetal and invasive flake removals to both faces forming a small sub-ovate. All flake scars appear to be hard hammer struck. Late Neolithic to Ealy Bronze Age.

Three hard hammer struck flakes, of unpatinated flint, one of dark grey flint, one mid-grey and one of banded dark and light grey. The largest (tertiary) is broken transversely below the platform, and has fine use wear to the thin edge from cutting, the back has been blunted by steep retouch. The other two (secondary) are without retouch, likely to be debitage. Smallest: 33 x 19 x 9 mm. 6 g. Mid: 33 x 20 x 9 mm. 6 g. Largest: 43 x 25.5 x 6 mm. 8 g.

Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Complete handaxe of Wymer's type D, of glossy black flint with few slightly lighter inclusions. The "blank" for this piece was a piece of a larger nodule of flint, much reduced in size by multiple thermal (frost) fractures, these are evident at the butt, on both faces, as this area is almost completely unworked and consequently is of irregular shape and quite thick. All flake removals are hard hammer struck and are only concentrated towards the point and the tip, it took few removals to produce this piece. The dorsal face remains cortical, leaving a strip of weathered, light grey corte…
