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.

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 fragment of cast copper alloy socketed axe, dating to the Late Bronze Age c. 1000 - 800 BC. Description: The fragment represents part of the socketed end of the axe and is unevenly shaped. Part of the rimmed collar for the socket remains. Just after the rim there is a side loop to help secure the axe to its handle, which remains roughly to 50% to its original length. The fragment is dark green on the surfaces, its surface is also heavily pitted with some casting bubbles visible. All breaks are heavily worn suggesting they occured during antiquity. Measurements: 21.04mm long, 28.63…
