Record ID: NMS-58F612
Object type: BLADE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
I 36. 110-120. Neolithic hard hammer struck secondary burin-like blade, with the proximal end transversely broken in antiquity, with fine use wear along the ventral edge, and with semi-invasive retouch to the entirety of one edge, possibly to "back" the implement. The other edge has a shallow steeply retouched notch mid-way and is very steeply retouched at the distal end to form a chisel like end. Possibly this tool was used for working antler or bone, but it is not spalled at the distal end to form a true (as earlier examples) burin. 82 x 20 x 8.5 mm. Weight 14g. Finder's code I36. 110-120

Object type: FLAKE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete struck tertiary flint flake, probably of Neolithic or Bronze Age date (c. 4000-750 BC). The flake is broadly sub-rectangular in form and has been struck from a nodule of dark brownish black flint, and is completely unpatinated. Most of the platform has splintered away, while the flake itself seems to have broken on detachment. There are two dorsal arrises on the upper surface of the flake, while the prominent bulb on the ventral side hints at hard hammer percussion. Edge damage is visible down both edges. It measures 44.86mm long down its percussion axis, 29.05mm wide at …

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Dark grey flint with cortex, knife. Leaf-shaped flake with long parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a bulb and ripples on its ventral surface. Short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect appears at the more pointed end. The cortex may have been retained to permit pressure to be brought to bear on the putative cutting edge. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC. Length: 34.3mm, Width: 21.2mm, Thickness: 6.8mm, Weight: 5.10gms

County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint scraper, sub-oval in plan, semi-circular in profile and in section. Made on a primary flake removed from a beach pebble with cortex remaining on more than half the surface of the dorsal face. The very crude scraper edge was produced by the rapid removal of around 8 or 9 lateral flakes from the curved distal edge of the original flake. The resulting tool has an irregular edge with a large point at one point which may have also served as an awl or piercer. The original pebble was struck using a different stone without previously preparing a striking platform. The point of percuss…

County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A thin flint concave scraper, sub-rectangular in plan although probably originally circular, elongated triangle in profile and flattened-dome in section. Made on a secondary flake with small patches of cortex remaining close to the proximal end. The striking platform is slightly to the left of the proximal end of the dorsal side. The scars of several shallow flakes are visible on the dorsal side, evidently to ensure that the resulting flake was fairly thin. Subsequently a large number of very small, fine pressure-flakes were removed from the distal and right hand margins of the flake t…

A chopping tool, probably also used as a scraper, oval in plan, triangular in profile and semi-circular in section. Made on a primary flake, struck from a flint nodule, which has then been extensively and bi-facially re-worked although a large patch of cortex remains on the dorsal face. The distal margin of the steeply domed dorsal face has been sharpened by the removal of lateral flakes through about two thirds of the circumference of the tool. At the proximal end a single large flake, together with several smaller ones, have been removed at the margin of the dorsal face to enable the…

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A horned scraper, sub-rectangular in plan, trapezoidal in profile and in plan. The dorsal face bears the scars of the removal of several earlier flakes. At the proximal end several shallow flakes have been removed to enable the user to grip the tool more easily at that end. The two sides are steeply angled from the margins as a result of the initial flake having been removed from a carefully pre-formed core. At the distal end several pressure flakes have been removed to form a sharp, concave edge with a pointed projection or horn on either side. The point of percussion is clearly visib…

Object type: BURIN
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Cornwall
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A retouched microlithic burin from the Mesolithic period. Trapezoidal in plan, and profile, triangular in section. Both ends of the burin have been broken off in antiquity: the proximal end at a right angle and the distal end obliquely. The scars of two earlier longitudinal flakes remain on the dorsal face, resulting in a triangular section. At the proximal end of the left hand margin of the dorsal face the margin has been blunted by the removal of 4 or 5 pressure flakes. The resulting artefact could have been held comfortably in either hand and used as a perforating tool. The pointed,…

A flint end scraper from the Mesolithic period. This micro-scraper was made from the proximal end of a tertiary flake or blade. Sub-oval in plan, plano-convex in profile and triangular in section. The scars of two earlier longitudinal flakes remain on the dorsal face, resulting in a triangular section. Subsequently a single shorter longitudinal flake was removed from the proximal end of the dorsal face, followed by the removal of several small pressure flakes at the proximal end to produce a scraper edge. The retouch has removed the striking platform from the proximal end. A large pres…

A flint end scraper from the Mesolithic period. This micro-scraper was made from the distal end of a tertiary flake or blade. Sub-rectangular in plan, plano-convex in profile and triangular in section. The proximal end of the blade was broken off in antiquity, resulting in the loss of the striking point and bulb of percussion. The dorsal face bears the scars of the removal of two earlier flakes which have resulted in the v-shaped profile and sharp edges of the flake. The distal end has been worked by the removal of at least ten parallel pressure-flakes resulting in a steep scraper edge…

A retouched flint flake, sub-oval in plan, plano-convex in profile and in section. A tertiary flake, the dorsal face of which bears the scars of the removal of several earlier longitudinal flakes at the distal end. At the proximal end two smaller longitudinal flakes have been removed, which terminate in negative hinge fractures mid-way across the flake. Multiple small flakes have also been removed at the upper right margin of the flake. At the upper left margin of the dorsal face at least six shallow pressure flakes have been removed to create a cutting edge. All traces of the striking…

A truncated microlithic blade from the Mesolithic period. Trapezoidal in plan, a narrow rectangle in profile and a flattened triangle in plan. Both ends of the original tertiary flake or blade were broken off in antiquity. The dorsal face bears the scars of the removal of two earlier flakes which have resulted in the v-shaped profile and sharp margins of the flake. No traces of the striking platform or of the bulb of percussion remain: slight conchoidal ripples can be seen on the ventral face.
