Record ID: NMS-A5D66C
Object type: KNIFE
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Early Bronze Age complete plano-convex knife of white and light grey patinated flint, made from a secondary hard hammer struck flake with a thick sandy coloured piece of cortex remaining unworked and presumably forming the "back" of the knife. The cutting edge is extensively and invasively pressure flaked at an angle with the flake scars reaching beyond the centre line of the dorsal face. Measuring 58 x 26 x 7 mm.

Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Published Find published
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…

Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Neolithic adze rough-out made from a thermally fractured (or "pot lid" fracture) piece of lightly patinated mottled grey flint broken from a larger nodule, two small unretouched areas remain on the ventral face and two small patches of weathered cortex remains on the dorsal face. Both faces are crudely hard hammer struck with some flake scars terminating in hinges. It is unlikely this piece was finished and it appears it was abandoned before completion. 120 x 44 x 25 mm.

Object type: SICKLE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age basal fragment of a bifacially worked sickle blade of plano-convex section. The pointed tip is recently broken transversely revealing unpatinated black flint.

Both faces are entirely covered with direct soft hammer percussion flakes overlain with invasive pressure flake scars. Cf. a similar sickle blade from Barton Bendish (NHER 13548). 75 x 28.5 x 8mm. c.3000 - c.1500.

Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
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.

'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…
