Record ID: NMS-C46B87
Object type: HARNESS PENDANT
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Medieval gilt copper alloy composite harness pendant comprising an elaborate sexfoil frame within which a separate sexfoil is suspended. The divisions between the petals of the latter are emphasised by radial engraved lines. A common type but a small example, similar to a pendant from Great Ellingham (NMS-0ED41D), also see two normal, larger pieces excavated in Norwich (Emery 2007, fig. 5.93 and pl. 5.12, SF 81 and SF 609). Suspension-loop broken. Extant height 33mm. Width 18mm (height and width of inner element 22mm and 11mm). 13th - 14th century.

Record ID: NMS-C33616
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 form, 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.

Record ID: NMS-C2FBC6
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.

Record ID: NMS-C2C8A8
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 remaval, this axe/adze is likely to date from the Mesolithic period: 10,000 to 4,000 BC.

Object type: PLANO CONVEX KNIFE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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.

Record ID: NMS-C264DD
Object type: FABRICATOR
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
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…

Only two scrapers have been recovered, both are quite large: Tertiary hard hammer struck ovoid flake of lightly patinated mottled grey flint with some small areas of spotty iron staining to both faces, steep retouch to the dorsal lateral edges and one end forming the scraping edge, the bulb of percussion on the ventral face has been removed by a single hard hammer blow from the dorsal edge. 86 x 51.5 x 17 mm. Tertiary hard hammer struck flake of dark and mid-grey flint with a pale coarse inclusion and a brown marine fossil to the ventral face. Steep retouch to the distal end to form th…

3 larger tertiary blades are present, and are described thus: One complete tertiary semi-soft hammer struck crested blade, of mottled light and mid grey patination with a small recent chip to the distal end revealing the dark grey original colour of the flint. 68 x 24 x 13 mm. One incomplete mid-section of a tertiary crested blade, of paler, almost white patinated flint with the recent breaks showing the original dark grey colour. This blade soft hammer struck from an opposed platform core, two of the flake scars on the dorsal face are 180 degrees to each other. 70 x 23 x 7 mm. One inc…

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
29 small light grey patinated blades and blade-like flakes, mostly semi-hard hammer struck with a small bulb of percussion and no bulbar scars, some baring transverse breaks, seven are recent breaks with the original mid-grey colour of the flint showing. It is tempting to date these to the Mesolithic period, although there is no evidence of manufacture of microliths and a lack of soft hammer percussion so a possible date of Early Neolithic is likely.

Large surface collection of lithics from area centred TM052898, approx. 130 hard hammer struck and largely unretouched flakes and simple flake tools of mostly unpatinated mottled grey and dark grey flint. Approx. 32 blade-like flakes, also hard hammer struck and mostly unretouched, some bear edge damage from light use or post depositional disturbance. Mostly unpatinated mottled grey and dark grey flint, a few are slightly patinated light grey. Both the flakes and the blade-like flakes are likely to be of Neolithic to Bronze Age date and are typical of most Late Prehistoric scatters in …

Incomplete Roman copper alloy Colchester derivative brooch of Mackreth's (2011) Type CD RH type 4k or 5k dating to the period c. AD 43 - 65. The tips of the wings, the pin mechanism and the catchplate are missing. The head exhibits C-shaped wings with the broken stub of a rearhook positioned in the centre. On the inside of the wings are traces of solder. The bow arches back from the head and terminates in a rounded foot. The remains of the catchplate project from the reverse of the foot.
