Flint debitage. Six small flakes, the largest with a markedly concave ventral surface and the others with long narrow parallel flake removal scars on the ir dorsal sides. A range of degrees of patination may indicate the variable exposure of the flint to a calcareous environment after its deposition. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC. Combined Weight: 4.83gms

1 piece of flint waste flake (debitage) from flint tool production, likely Neolithic to the Bronze Age c. 4000 - 1000BC. Description: The flake is a secondary flake afrom blade production, it has a pronounced bulb of percussion and substantial rippling likely due to hard hammer production. No retouch or evidence of use of the flake as a tool. The flin is mottled Light grey with some patches of inclusions and a light brown semi-transparent light grey brown edges.

County: Kent
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A probable core formed unfinished flint chisel of late Neolithic or early Bronze Age date c.4000-1000 BC. Description: The chisel sub-rectangular in shape and pointed oval in cross-section. It has been flaked to shape from a larger piece of flint by covering scaled semi-abrupt flaking. The tool has a hinge fracture at one end is pointed and triangular in plan with cortex still adhering across half of it. It is presumed this is the working end as one would expect the butt end would be flatter. the pointed end has less flaking also, so it is uncertain if this was a working end or if it …

Record ID: SUR-C2C649
Object type: AXEHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Surrey
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A polished Neolithic axehead, 101.9mm in length, which tapers from a maximum of 47.7mm wide near the blade to a narrow butt. The object is knapped from a mottled sandy brown to dark brown flint. There is some chip damage from tumbling to the blade, butt and edges. A concave area of damage to the edge of the blade has been subject to reworking with adrupt to semi-abrupt retouch. This suggests an attempt to re-sharpen after an ancient break and that the axe was used as a functional object.

Object type: FLAKE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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.

Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
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…

A large flint scraper, probably from the Late Neolithic to Early Bronze age c. 3300 - 2000 BC. The lithic has a 'D' shaped, cross section and is a broadly, a rounded triangle in plan. The ventral surface has a distinct bulb of percussion beneath the striking platform, to the proximal end. The dorsal surface has significant negative scaring and subsequent arrises. One worked edge has a semi denticulate retouch with the opposite edge being smoother in form. There is an element of bifacial retouch to one quarter. The flint has a deep grey/brown colour with several lighter inclusions over …

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Tertiary, soft hammer struck small flake of white and grey patinated flint with slight iron stains to both faces, one edge is semi-invasively retouched to form a scraping edge. Due to its similar patination and proximity to NMS-990E2E it is possible that this is of Late (final) Palaeolithic date, though it is of unusually small form.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Late Upper (final) Palaeolithic semi-hard hammer struck blade with a faceted and isolated platform and only a slight bulge to the bulb of percussion, and a tiny bulbar scar, now white and light grey patinated, with spotty iron stains to both faces. The distal end is finely and invasively retouched to form the scraping edge, and both lateral edges are "bruised" or use-worn. Recent damage to parts of the edges reveal the original colour of the flint was black. 10,000 to 12,000 BC.

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Possible Late (final) Upper Palaeolithic secondary end scraper, hard hammer struck with three impact points to the faceted platform, of differentially patinated black flint, the dorsal face has slight pale patination mostly towards the distal end. The ventral face is patinated light grey, almost white, both faces have spotty iron stains. The extant cortex to the dorsal face is thin and weathered and this edge is recently damaged from platform to the steep retouch of the scraping edge, a few other recently damaged areas along the edges are evident from their lack of patination.

County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of a soft hammer struck long-blade, the proximal end is extant, broken transversely in antiquity, the piece of flint before being broken has been burnt, the break has also removed an invasive flake to the dorsal face in the process, and this has fractured in a hackly manner due to the thermal irregularities from the heat. The flint appears to originally been of mottled grey flint, but is now patchily patinated white, the proximal end is steeply retouched (removing the diffuse bulb of percussion in the process) to form a scraper, both lateral edges have fine use-wear and one si…

Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Two tertiary, soft hammer struck blades of pale white/light grey semi-translucent flint. The larger (26 x 17 x 2.5 mm) is broken transversely so only the disal end remains, the blade terminates in a slight hinge, and one side is recently damaged. The smaller (25 x 12 x 3 mm) is also broken transversely, but only the proximal end is extant. Difficult to date, but likely to pre-date the Neolithic period.

County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Tertiary, hard hammer struck flake, of unpatinated slightly mottled dark grey flint of good quality, struck from a prepared core with semi-centripetal, over-lapping invasive flake scars to the rather flat dorsal face. The bulb of percussion has been removed transversely by very steep retouch struck from the dorsal face, all edges appear to have been damaged recently. Likely to be a unifacial variation of the discoidal knife. Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age.
