Object type: RETOUCHED FLAKE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Tertiary, soft hammer struck flake, of unpatinated dark grey flint with two white and buff coarse inclusions. One side of the distal end is recently broken at 45 degrees to the orientation of the flake, with steep retouch to either side of the proximal end, one side is restricted to a broad notch c. 13 mm across, the other edge is straightened by retouch (unusually) on the bulbar side from the platform to almost half-way where upon it becomes irregular towards the break.

Record ID: NMS-C23B2E
Object type: AXE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Over half of a Neolithic ground and polished axe, of light and dark banded and mottled flint, the coarse inclusions are an off-white colour. The butt has been broken transversely in antiquity, the cutting edge is asymmetrical and highly polished, giving a sheen that fades into the rest of the axe. One large flake has been removed recently to the cutting edge, revealing the flint was indeed brown to begin with.

Record ID: NMS-AEC217
Object type: FLAKE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Two semi-hard hammer struck flakes, the longer of the two is in unpatinated dark grey flint and is shallowly notched to one lateral edge at the midpoint (51 x 17 x 8.5 mm). The other is of mottled brown and grey slightly patinated flint, also semi-hard hammer struck from an opposed, or multi-platform core with previous flake removals in opposition to each other, both ends of the flake retain platforms. Possible fine use-wear as well as recent damage to the lateral edge with the thinnest angle (43.5 x 21 x 7 mm). Both pieces are Late Prehistoric: Neolithic to Bronze Age.

Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Almost complete leaf-shaped arrowhead of Green's (1980) type 3A, closely matching the outline of example h. It was of dark brown flint (as seen in the small recently damaged areas of the edges and, more so, to the butt), now patinated mottled light grey and white. Both faces are invasively pressure flaked with the dorsal face being the most successful with over lapping flake scars covering the surface of the arrowhead, the ventral face has a "blank" area at the centre where the flakes have stopped short and hinged, a common knapping error arising from using a struck flake as a starting…

Record ID: NMS-9957DD
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Tertiary, soft hammer struck small flake of white and grey patinated flint with slight iron stains to both faces, one edge is semi-invasively retouched to form a scraping edge. Due to its similar patination and proximity to NMS-990E2E it is possible that this is of Late (final) Palaeolithic date, though it is of unusually small form.

Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Late Upper (final) Palaeolithic semi-hard hammer struck blade with a faceted and isolated platform and only a slight bulge to the bulb of percussion, and a tiny bulbar scar, now white and light grey patinated, with spotty iron stains to both faces. The distal end is finely and invasively retouched to form the scraping edge, and both lateral edges are "bruised" or use-worn. Recent damage to parts of the edges reveal the original colour of the flint was black. 10,000 to 12,000 BC.

Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Possible Late (final) Upper Palaeolithic secondary end scraper, hard hammer struck with three impact points to the faceted platform, of differentially patinated black flint, the dorsal face has slight pale patination mostly towards the distal end. The ventral face is patinated light grey, almost white, both faces have spotty iron stains. The extant cortex to the dorsal face is thin and weathered and this edge is recently damaged from platform to the steep retouch of the scraping edge, a few other recently damaged areas along the edges are evident from their lack of patination.

Object type: BLADE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of a soft hammer struck long-blade, the proximal end is extant, broken transversely in antiquity, the piece of flint before being broken has been burnt, the break has also removed an invasive flake to the dorsal face in the process, and this has fractured in a hackly manner due to the thermal irregularities from the heat. The flint appears to originally been of mottled grey flint, but is now patchily patinated white, the proximal end is steeply retouched (removing the diffuse bulb of percussion in the process) to form a scraper, both lateral edges have fine use-wear and one si…

Record ID: NMS-96BF1E
Object type: BLADE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Two tertiary, soft hammer struck blades of pale white/light grey semi-translucent flint. The larger (26 x 17 x 2.5 mm) is broken transversely so only the disal end remains, the blade terminates in a slight hinge, and one side is recently damaged. The smaller (25 x 12 x 3 mm) is also broken transversely, but only the proximal end is extant. Difficult to date, but likely to pre-date the Neolithic period.

Object type: DISCOIDAL KNIFE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Tertiary, hard hammer struck flake, of unpatinated slightly mottled dark grey flint of good quality, struck from a prepared core with semi-centripetal, over-lapping invasive flake scars to the rather flat dorsal face. The bulb of percussion has been removed transversely by very steep retouch struck from the dorsal face, all edges appear to have been damaged recently. Likely to be a unifacial variation of the discoidal knife. Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age.

Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Hard hammer struck flake, essentially tertiary, with only a small piece of cortex extant to the distal end of the dorsal face, this face is covered with the overlapping flake scars, semi-centripetally knapped and likely to have been struck from a biface rough-out (re-used debitage from an axe) or from a specially prepared core, i.e. of Levalloisian tradition. One edge is irregularly retouched and damaged, the other has four steeply retouched notches of ascending size: one at c. 2 mm, next c. 5 mm, next c. 8 mm, and the largest c. 8.5 mm but slightly deeper.

Possible Neolithic axe rough-out, in very fresh condition and unpatinated, of dark grey slightly mottled flint with pale grey coarse inclusions, with three small patches of thin, white cortex to the dorsal face. All edges are still sharp with no abrasion noted, flake removals appear to be hard hammer struck with deep negative bulbal scars, some removals have hinged, but not to a great degree, apart from one large flake scar to the right lateral side when viewed with the dorsal face uppermost and with the broadest to the top, this has failed to under-cut the thickest part of the axe and…

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.
