Record ID: NMS-C8F0F9
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Secondary, hard hammer struck flake from a cylindrical corticated nodule, of grey flint with some spotty iron stains. One edge is steeply retouched from the ventral face to form a scraper, the opposing edge is shallowly notched (c. 12 mm dia.) with steep retouch from the dorsal face.

County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Secondary, hard hammer struck flake, with thin, worn cortex extant. Of slightly brown patinated grey flint, the distal end is retouched to form the scraping edge in the usual manner. The scraper is recently damaged, with semi-invasive flake scars, mostly to the ventral face, being unpatinated.

Record ID: NMS-C772B9
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Tertiary, semi-hard hammer struck, and rather thin flake, of largely unpatinated pale grey flint with white, mottled inclusions and faint, small iron oxide staining to parts of both faces. The bulb of percussion is partially removed by a flake removal on the ventral face, struck from the side of the platform. The distal end is steeply retouched to form the scraping edge, and both lateral edges are irregularly retouched. Flake scars to the dorsal face all run the same way as the flake itself, indicating that this piece was struck from a single platform core. Neolithic, possibly early.

Object type: FLAKE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Tertiary, hard hammer struck flake, of thick, triangular section, of a similar patination to other flints recovered from the Cromer forest bed formation: - it is of dark grey flint with lighter grey inclusions, now stained almost black from exposure to the peaty deposit, making the flint look as if it's of better quality than it is. The condition is rather fresh, there is small amounts of abrasion to the flake ridges and the edges, making the irregular, bifacial flake removals from parts of the edges difficult to ascertain if they are use wear, retouch or post depositional damage, or i…

Object type: CLEAVER
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Handaxe, of Cleaver form (Wymer's type H) with the primary cutting-edge profile of type E (straight), the other edge can be regarded as a type F (reverse "S" twist), though this is largely due to a natural hollow and awkward knapping angles towards the butt on this side, rather than production from a large struck flake blank, Hollows and cortex are present to both faces suggesting this Cleaver was produced from an amoebic nodule, or natural fractures thereof. All flake removals are semi-hard hammer struck, invasive, and where platform angles allow, overlap the centre-line. The broad ti…

Broad period: EARLY MEDIEVAL
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Approx. half of a sub-square sectioned whetstone, of smooth, worn fine-grained schist, thin sedimentary banding is just visable on two opposing sides. The end changes section to almost triangular, with deeply incised "V" at a slight angle on one face. The very end has fine, parrallel scratches from use. C. 800 to 1100 AD.

Small tertiary, hard hammer struck spear or knife-like implement, of sub-triangular plan form and of patinated dark orange/brown flint.

Record ID: NMS-905D34
Object type: AXEHEAD ROUGHOUT
Broad period: MESOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Small, asymmetrical biface, all flake removals are hard hammer struck, of orange patinated flint, with some recent damage to both ends and one side revealing the original mottled grey flint. Possibly a trial piece or reject of an attempt at an axe or adze. No tranchet flake removal to the "cutting" edge noted. With no diagnostic features, a broad date range of Mesolithic to Neolithic is likely.

Object type: CORE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Suffolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Core, made from a large hard hammer struck flake, with a large bulbal scar to the ventral face, and several semi-invasive and centripetally struck hard hammer flakes removed from the dorsal face, also towards the centre of this face is a patch of thermally (frost) fracured surface where the flakes haven't overlapped. Banded flint now patinated white, yellow and orange. Possibly Early Neolithic, cf. Butler (2005) page 120, fig. 47, nuber 6 for a broadly similar dicoidal core.
