Record ID: NMS-98295C
Object type: RETOUCHED FLAKE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Neolithic - Late Bronze Age flint retouched flake. Struck off a tertiary flake; no cortex remains. The dorsal surface exhibits four concave removal scars. The ventral surface exhibits a small bulb of percussion with bulbar scar and radiating conchoidal ripple marks. The distal end terminates in a transverse break, possibly recent. There is evidence of short, scaled parallel retouch along one mesal edge. The flint is a semi-translucent mottled grey in colour.

Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Very large and well-formed "statement" Handaxe, of Wymer's (1999) Type F (pointed), originally of mottled light grey flint now patinated various shades of buff due to exposure of the surfaces to glacial sands and gravels, the coarser inclusions are tending to the darker range. It is complete, with only minor ancient damage to the tip (type iii, ogee point), a small chip to one lateral edge is recent and shows the original colour of the flint, and similarly the base of the butt has a small, unpatinated removal. All flake removals are soft hammer struck from well prepared platforms, rem…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Large Egyptian Fayum (or Faiyum) hollow-based point found on the old drive of Wolterton Hall, of brown flint with fine darker bands resembling cracks, these where present within the flint at the time of manufacture as the flakes removals are affected by the difference of hardness. Rather thick (7.25 mm) with only a slight hollowing of the base to form the barbs, the thickness would have restricted the depth of the base. All surfaces are finely pressure flaked with no remnants of the original flake from which this was likely to have been made from. Almost complete, with only the extreme…

Surface collection of fifty five worked-out cores, All appear to be hard hammer struck and most are opportunistic collections of naturally "frost" fractured fragments of larger nodules worked from several platforms to produce small, sharp flakes, then discarded. All grades of flint are represented in this collection, and the majority are patinated to some degree, either a patchy light grey to almost white in a few cases. Only three are of the "opposed platform" reduction strategy to produce blade-like flakes, with overlapping of the flake scars at the mid-point of the face, a useful t…

Tertiary, soft hammer struck flake, of unpatinated dark grey flint with two white and buff coarse inclusions. One side of the distal end is recently broken at 45 degrees to the orientation of the flake, with steep retouch to either side of the proximal end, one side is restricted to a broad notch c. 13 mm across, the other edge is straightened by retouch (unusually) on the bulbar side from the platform to almost half-way where upon it becomes irregular towards the break.

Proximal end of a hard hammer struck blade, snapped transversely recently, of unpatinatinated mid-grey flint with a combination of fine use wear and recent damage to both lateral edges. The platform has been trimmed prior to this blades removal from the core. Neolithic to Bronze Age, c.4000 to c.700 BC.

Over half of a Neolithic ground and polished axe, of light and dark banded and mottled flint, the coarse inclusions are an off-white colour. The butt has been broken transversely in antiquity, the cutting edge is asymmetrical and highly polished, giving a sheen that fades into the rest of the axe. One large flake has been removed recently to the cutting edge, revealing the flint was indeed brown to begin with.

Early - Middle Neolithic flint flake dating to the period c. 4000 - 2351 BC. Struck off a tertiary flake, no cortex remains on the dorsal face. The ventral face exhibits a high bulb of percussion and pronounced bulbar scar with closely spaced conchoidal ripple marks. The dorsal surface exhibits three sub-parallel negative flake scars. No retouch is visible. The flint is a mottled light grey.

Early - Middle Neolithic flint notched flake dating to the period c. 4000 - 2351 BC. Struck off a secondary flake, approximately 20% cortex remains on the dorsal face. The ventral face exhibits a high bulb of percussion and pronounced bulbar scar with closely spaced conchoidal ripple marks. The dorsal surface exhibits four sub-parallel negative flake scars. The distal end exhibits a combination of short, scaled abrupt and semi-abrupt retouch which runs part-way up both mesal edges and shows signs of heavy use-wear. The flint is a mottled light grey-brown.

Two semi-hard hammer struck flakes, the longer of the two is in unpatinated dark grey flint and is shallowly notched to one lateral edge at the midpoint (51 x 17 x 8.5 mm). The other is of mottled brown and grey slightly patinated flint, also semi-hard hammer struck from an opposed, or multi-platform core with previous flake removals in opposition to each other, both ends of the flake retain platforms. Possible fine use-wear as well as recent damage to the lateral edge with the thinnest angle (43.5 x 21 x 7 mm). Both pieces are Late Prehistoric: Neolithic to Bronze Age.

Almost complete leaf-shaped arrowhead of Green's (1980) type 3A, closely matching the outline of example h. It was of dark brown flint (as seen in the small recently damaged areas of the edges and, more so, to the butt), now patinated mottled light grey and white. Both faces are invasively pressure flaked with the dorsal face being the most successful with over lapping flake scars covering the surface of the arrowhead, the ventral face has a "blank" area at the centre where the flakes have stopped short and hinged, a common knapping error arising from using a struck flake as a starting…
