Record ID: NMS-92F628
Object type: AXE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Polished axe in dark grey mottled glossy flint with negligible patination. Polished extensively on one face from the broad blade up the central area to the square butt and with one lateral edge rounded slightly along its whole length, the other only toward the butt. The opposed face is only polished at the extreme edge of the cutting edge and is otherwise neatly finished by shallow re-touch flaking. The elegant shape suggests that this is a flint copy of an Early Bronze Age flat axe, and the shallow invasive flaking is also typical of this transitional period. Almost certainly Late Ne…

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Late palaeolithic double-ended scraper. Segment of a large blade with a single crest in a chocolate brown stained flint. Both ends appear to have been steeplyretouched to give a double ended scraper but both have suffered ancient damage. The distal edge has small neat retouch scars at both ends but the central part of the edge has two larger scars with evidence of crushing on the ventral side. The proximal end appears to have been damaged by the loss of a large chip and shows slight evidence of crushing on the ventral edge. The find spot is near one of the head ways of the River We…

County: Norfolk

Polished Axe, dimensions: 169 x 61 x 34mm. Highly ground and polished all over, with only a few faint flake scars visible at the lateral edges and rounded butt: the sides are ground round rather than flat. The curved cutting edge is sharp with only one ancient chip, while a recent small chip reveals pale grey flint. The axe is patinated light brown with some buff areas. Found in the 1960's and subsequently used as a paperweight. Neolithic (4,000 to 2,350BC)

Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Leaf Arrowhead (incomplete) Dimensions 36 x 25 x 4.6mm. A broad based, thin leaf arrowhead, recently snapped transversely with loss of the point. Finished overall on both faces by peripheral shallow pressure flaking, with complete removal of the surface of the blank. Both faces show signs of incipient patination, which has not affected the break surface. Leaf Arrowheads are a defining artefact of the Neolithic (especially the Early Neolithic Period, 4000-3000BC).

Neolithic flint axe head with a rounded butt, expanding slightly to an ancient break. The cutting edge is completely missing. Almost lozengiform in section.

Object type: PICK
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Probably Neolithic flint pick. Dimensions 416 x 66 x 49mm. Brown staining over dark grey / black flint. Rhombic section with sharp ridge on one face, largely formed by a natural cleavage plane. Other face flaked over all and with a more rounded ridge. Colour suggests a probable peaty origin, and there is a trace of concretion on one face. At one end an impact has removed a longitudinal flake which has exposed the underlying flint, but this break does not appear to be recent. Otherwise the artefact is undamaged, but is not sharp. The flint is grainy, giving a dull fracture, bu…

Neolithic polished flint axehead. Lenticular in section, polished overall but with a few flake scars still visible. Cutting edge curved and sharp, sides tapering towards narrow, straight butt.
