Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Large secondary hard hammer struck end scraper, of unpatinated mottled grey flint with rairly irregular steep retouch to the distal end forming the scraping edge, the flake blank is struck from a single platform core with the flake scars to the dorsal face all orientated in the same direction; from the platform to the distal end, on one side these have hinged several times. Due to its size an Early Neolithic date is likely. 4,000 to 3001 BC.

County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Thermally (frost) fracture, a "potlid" with thin, weathered cortex to the dorsal face, steeply retouched by hard hammer percussion along both edges and the "distal" end to form a scraper. The flint is patinated pale grey and mid grey mottles with a white, coarse inclusion to the ventral face, fine frost cracks run throughout the flint, although they seem to be quite stable. Date is uncertian, but this piece may be of late prehistoric origin, most scrapers made from a frost fractures are late, though the fine cracks may indicate a much earlier date.

Opposed platform small core, struck from a small semi-spherical nodule of mottled grey flint, platforms formed by two hard hammer flake remavals to each end, with nine main hard hammer struck flake scars producing small blade-like flakes, the back of the core is unmodified weathered cortex, unlikely to be Mesolithic. 47 x 44 x 30 mm. 2.

Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Unpatinated arrowhead of mottled dark grey flint, made from a tertiary semi-hard hammer struck flake, with invasive pressure flake scars to both faces, the piece is damaged at the tip of the point. This arrowhead is of unusual form, the main body being ogival in plan, and having a prominent tang, but with the barbs merely "stepped" in from the sides rather than invasively notched from the base. Likely to be of Green, S. (1980) Sutton type A. Early Bronze Age: 2350 to 1700 BC.

Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Tertiary, hard hammer struck flake of pale, mottled grey patination with some recent damage (including the loss of one rear corner) revealing the orgional dark grey flint beneath. One edge is steeply retouched by pressure flaking to form a continious platform for invasive flaking on the opposite face, the other edge is bifacially, and semi-invasively pressure flaked. Given the triangular plan form and the initial passes of pressure flaking, it is likely that this piece is an unfinished barbed and tanged arrowhead, Early Bronze Age: 2350 to 1700 BC.

Object type: AXE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Thin butted axe or adze of dark grey flint with faint, pale grey patination to one face and red/brown streaks within the flint. The tip of the butt is broken transversely in antiquity and just below this there is a slight thermal flaw in the flint that was present at the time of manufacture, also there is recent damage to the cutting edge and one side. As the cutting edge is sharpened by a tranchet flake removal, this axe/adze is likely to date from the Mesolithic period: 10,000 to 4,000 BC.

Plano-convex flint knife, made from a primary blade-like flake of good quality unpatinated semi-translucent grey flint, the dorsal face is almost covered with invasive pressure flake scars and only a small patch of cortex remains to the central part of the dorsal face near the proximal end. The distal end appears to be recently damaged on one edge. See Clarke, J.G.D. (1932a) for discussion on the dating and associated finds.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Secondary hard hammer struck blade-like flake with a patch of thick cortex extant to the distal end on the dorsal face, of unpatinated slightly mottled grey flint with steep retouch to all edges forming an elongated sub-ovoid plan and a plano-convex section. The distal end is worn and rounded from abrasion. Such tools are referred to as "fabricators" and their function was obscure. It is now known that it is likely that these were used to strike against a split nodule of Marcasite (a type of Iron Pyrite) to produce sparks to light fires. 83 x 29 x 12 mm. This example is likely to be of…
