Object type: CHOPPER
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: East Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A flint-knapped possible Early to Middle Palaeolithic 'Clactonian' flint chopper, c. 500,000-40,001 BC. The object is entirely covered in a light brown cortex, save for the knapped end, which has a large prepared platform and four elongated removals; the distal face seems to bear a hinge fracture below the platform. The exposed knapped surfaces have an overall even blue-grey patina.

Record ID: SUSS-D82337
Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: East Sussex
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Lower Palaeolithic, Acheulean, bifaced ovate flint hand axe. The hand axe is oval, and the thickest area about half of the way down. It is generally symmetrical in plan and profile with a slight S shape to the edge, more prominent on one side to the other. The axe is almost completely covered in shallow flake removal scars with evidence for more precise retouch around some edges. There is some small evidence of relatively modern edge damage particularly around the edges. The arises on both faces are slightly smoothed consistant with some post depositional wear but not long term rollin…

Record ID: SUSS-AF6EC6
Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: East Sussex
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Palaeolithic Acheulian handaxe of ficron type with a long tapering point and large, partially worked, butt. The point is formed with invasive shallow flaking and is pointed oval in cross section. There are small areas of natural cortex remaining on one side. The point widens and thickens to the large lozenge shaped butt. The widening is a fairly consistant taper down the ficron but the thickness tapers gradually at first before stepping out more steeply half of the way down. The butt is large with some long, shallow flake removals on two sides and the base; the base also has areas of h…

Later Upper Palaeolithic secondary flake (15,000-8,300 BC). The flake surface shows evidence cortex reforming giving an indication of the age of the flake, it is also patinated from light grey to white reflecting the deposition chalk downland. There is a prepared, but damaged, platform at the proximal end. On the dorsal surface (upper face) there are arrises from previous flake removals and evidence of platform preparation. There is a large area of original cortex at the distal end, visible on both sides. On the ventral surface (lower face) part of a bulb of percussion and bulb scars…

Later Upper Palaeolithic tertiary flake (15,000-8,300 BC). The flake surface shows evidence cortex reforming giving an indication of the age of the flake, it is also patinated from light grey to white reflecting the deposition chalk downland. The striking platform has been removed at the proximal end due to old damage, this has also removed the bulb of percussion although percussion waves are still clear on the ventral face. There is a hinge fracture at the distal end. On the dorsal surface (upper face) there are arrises from previous flake removals. There is a small area of starch f…
