Secondary, hard hammer struck blade-flake, of unpatinated glossy brown flint with thick cortex to the left side of the dorsal face when viewed with the (faceted) platform uppermost, the distal end is broken by a transverse bending fracture, now steeply retouched or worn from use as a scraping edge. The right lateral edge is also steeply retouched along its entire length, presumably used as a side scraper.

Object type: PERFORATED OBJECT
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Perforated "mace-head", from a modified water-worn pebble of an unidentified brown banded stone, probably a glacial erratic. The perforation is slightly off-centre, and of hourglass section, the hole is pecked, and of pointed oval shape, this is due to a weaker band of stone, perforation is 8.5 x 7 mm. Surface diameter is 18.5 x 17, and on the other face it is: 16.5 x 16 mm. The smaller end of the pebble is slightly battered, presumably from use. See NMGW-A2477F for a larger example, made of Dolerite and a discussion as to the possible function of these enigmatic objects.

Early - Middle Bronze Age flint plano-convex knife dating to the period c. 2350 - 1500 BC. Hard hammer struck tertiary flake. It exhibits four narrow negative flake scars on the dorsal face. The ventral surface is missing the blub of percussion and exhibits a series of closely spaced conchoidal ripple marks. The distal end has been retouched on both the dorsal and ventral face, with three flakes removed from each face. One mesal edge exhibits prssure flaked semi-invasive, scaled semi-abrupt retouch. The flint is a mottled dark grey. See: Clarke, T.G.D, 1932, "The Date of the Plano-Co…

Object type: RETOUCHED FLAKE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A retouched flint flake of probable Neolithic or Bronze Age date, c. 4000-1500 BC. The tool has been manufactured from a tertiary flake of fine-grained brownish grey translucent flint, with a prominent bulb of percussion on its ventral face inferring hard-hammer percussion. The platform is irregular in form and cortical, while the dorsal left edge demonstrates inverse scalar low-angle retouch. Preserved in fresh condition with no patination visible, it measures 30.48mm in length, 31.55mm in width, and 6.28mm thick at its midpoint. It weighs 5.78g.

A complete possible Neolithic flint implement, possibly knife (c. 4000 BC-c. 2351 BC). This implement is an elongated sub-oval shape, sub-triangular in cross-section. The dorsal face has been flaked but about a third of the surface at the proximal end is mainly covered in cortex. The edges have been retouched with short abrupt, parallel and sub-parallel removals. However, at the left edge (as viewed) adjacent to the cortex, the removals are very crude. The ventral face is undulating and has four major flake removals. The arrises are sharp on both faces This implement is grey with a …
