Record ID: SF-1419E3
Object type: CORE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A knapped flint blade core of probable Mesolithic to Neolithic date, c. 6000-3000 BC. It is broadly cuboidal in form, demonstrating at least ten negative blade removals on its outer surfaces. Both ends have been rejuvenated and used as platforms, with opposing pairs of removals occuring. One platform is flanked by a patch of cortex which now covers c. 10-15% of the entire object's surface, while the other demonstrates a crushed area abutting several failed blade removals with overhanging step fractures resulting from an inadequate knapping angle. Preserved in fairly fresh condition wit…

Record ID: SF-10DD98
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete knapped flint side-and-end-scraper of probable late Neolithic to Bronze Age date (c. 3000-1150 BC). It has been manufactured on a secondary flake of mid brown 'tan' coloured flint, with a pale off-white cortex still covering c. 30% of the dorsal surface. It is broadly circular in plan, demonstrating a sub-lenticular cortical platform with a prominent cone of percussion suggestive of hard-hammer detachment as regarding the original support. Semi-abruptly angled short retouch removals are visible around virtually the entire circumference of the piece (excepting the platform) …

Object type: DEBITAGE
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint debitage dating from c. 10,000 - 801 BC. The flint is irregular in shape. The dorsal face retains a patch of cortex and there are two depressed sections where flakes have been struck off. The centre of the ventral face is flat with visible ripples of percussion. The edges of this face are angled, possibly also to remove flakes. The flint does not appear to have been worked or shaped. The flint is translucent and brown in colour with white patches. It is 49.90mm in length, 31.12mm in width and 11.39mm in thickness. The weight of the object is 18.05g.

Flint debitage dating from c. 10,000 - 801 BC. The flint is leaf-shaped with a rounded end and a point. The ventral face is largely flat and smooth with visible bulb of percussion at the pointed end. The dorsal face is bulbous at the wider end and narrower towards the point. There may be some slight retouching along the edges on the dorsal face but this is neither extensive or consistent suggesting that this piece was discarded before it was finished. Some cortex remains on the bulbous section of the dorsal face. Otherwise, there are a number of flat sections where flakes have been str…

Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Flint debitage dating from the Mesolithic to Bronze Age c. 10,000 - 801 BC. The flint is irregular in shape - it is broadly sub-rectangular with two projections, at opposite corners, where flakes have been struck from this piece. The dorsal face is corticated in the middle with smooth, angled edges. There is no evidence of reworking. There is nothing characteristic to allow a more precise dating of this flint piece. The flint is a mottled light grey in colour. It is 55.94mm in length, 45.23mm in width and 15.64mm in thickness. The object is 37.86g in weight.

Object type: BLADE
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Tertiary soft hammer struck blade, possibly from a single platform core, of white/light grey and black patinated mottled grey flint. The distal end is transversely broken in antiquity, Small areas of recent damage to both lateral edges show the flint was originally mid-grey in colour. One edge not recently damaged shows fine use wear, possibly from use as a cutting impliment. Likely to be Mesolithic to Early Neolithic, 10,000 to 3,000 BC.

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A late Neolithic or early Bronze Age flint end scraper or knife. Only approximately half of the tool survives. The surviving part is the proximal end, and contains a striking platform. A bulb of percussion is visible on the ventral surface. The dorsal surface has a a large flake-removal scar running down the centre, with several narrower others flanking it on both sides. No retouch is visible; this, presumably, was on the end that is now missing. The flint appears to have snapped almost horizontally across the flint. The flint is mottled brown.

County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Complete reworked flint flake, possibly a scraper, probably dating from the Neolithic to the Bronze Age (c. 4000 - 801 BC). The flint is discoidal in shape with a smooth unworked ventral face, on which a bulb of percussion is evident. The distal face has semi-abrupt scaled retouch around 70% of the edge. The unworked section of the distal face retains a rough, light grey cortex. Otherwise the flint is a translucent dark grey colour with some mottling. The length of the flint flake is 40.59mm, it is 35.73mm in width and 9.96mm thick. The weight of the flake is 17.58g.

A complete flint piece of Debitage of Mesolithic to Bronze Age date (9000-1200 BC). The lithic is sub-triangular in plan and plano-convex in plan. The dorsal surface in convex with three predominant negative scars. The proximal edge is blunted while the distal end tapers to a point. All edges have rough abrupt retouch. The ventral surface is predominantly flat with the exception of two negative scars. The flint is light grey in colour with cream and dark grey inclusions/bands. The lithic retains no cortex and is therefore a tertiary flake. Length: 32.04mm, Width: 18.46mm, Thickness: …

Complete worked flint flake, probably dating from the Neolithic to the Bronze Age (c. 4000 - 801 BC). The flint is irregular in shape, almost oval, and slightly convex. The distal face retains its rough grey-brown cortex save for a section of short, abrupt and scaled retouch along 40% of the edge. The ventral face is unworked and reveals the mottled translucent grey colour of the flint. The worked flake is 40.93mm in length, 36.44mm in width and 11.06mm in thickness. The weight of the flint is 22.32g.
