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…

'Handaxe' Dimensions 102 x 62 x 56mm. In blackish flint and of roughly plano-convex section, this biface can be considered as having a rounded butt end and an opposed pointed end, It has a small area of thin weathered cortex on the narrow crest but is otherwise flaked overall. With the pointed end away from the observer, the right side face is formed by two large flake removals and two smaller, the left face by one large removal and several smaller ones. The 'base' has a number of smaller removals and a line of battering along its length The condition is rolled except for the po…

Object type: BLADE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Late Upper Palaeolithic long blade which appears to be struck with a soft hammer from a single platform core. Flake directions are difficult to observe as the piece is heavily patinated white with some small areas of spotty iron staining. The proximal end is missing, broken recently and revealing unpatinated black flint. One lateral edge has been steeply retouched along its length at a later date, perhaps during the Neolithic or Bronze Age and has a light grey patination. Such re-use is uncommon, but not unknown. It shows that this piece had been lost or discarded and found several th…

County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Lower Palaeolithic handaxe of type D (Wymer 1968, 1999.) Hard hammer struck from a suitable flat and slightly irregular nodule of mottled grey and black flint, now unpatinated; both faces have a patch of cortex extant, one appearing as a hollow where the flake removals did not succeed in being deep enough to level the concavity. All the edges and high points of the flake scars are heavily rolled. 143.5 x 80 x 37 mm. Weight: 432g. Found on beach. Recorded and sketched by the late Tony Gregory in 1975.

Object type: HANDAXE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Palaeolithic flint handaxe. Measuring 210 x 115 x 37mm. This is a very large handaxe, probably one of the largest ever recorded from Norfolk. Although long and wide, the handaxe is relatively slim and has a profile that suggests that it may have been made on a flake. It is finished by large flake removals around the whole perimeter except at the point, where the flake scars are small. A recent chip shows that it is made from pale grey flint which is patinated and stained brown, heavily in some areas. The condition is lightly rolled and it is probably derived from a gravel deposit. Ha…

Lower Palaeolithic pointed ovate handaxe of Wymer's type E, unifacially and invasively knapped from a thermal or "potlid" fractured piece of white patinated flint, the dorsal (worked) face is patinated with a white "basket weave" with the original brown flint colour showing in-between, there is a small patch of worn and orange stained cortex where the flakes did not overlap towards the middle of this face. This type of handaxe are quickly made from any available small piece of flint and the knapping is focused usually to produce one sharp cutting edge over any attempt at symmetry, thou…

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