Object type: MOUNT
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Fragment of a probably flat copper alloy sheet object with one outer, curving edge and the remaining edges broken. From one break a line of four repoussé dots runs parallel to, but set back from, the curving edge. Beyond the fourth dot there is a patch of probable solder on the front face before another break. The diameter of the curve is c.44mm, but only 20% of such a circle is extant (length 28mm). The maximum surviving width is 8.5mm. Possibly medieval.

The distal end of a flint scraper of Mesolithic to Early Bronze Age date. The piece is a secondary flake in black translucent flint with some cortex remaining on one side. There is an irregular snap at the proximal end. The aris and scars on the dorsal face suggest repeated blade removals from the same direction. There is invasive, parallel semi-abrupt retouch at the distal end on the dorsal face becoming shallower towards the centre. There is long, scalar semi-abrupt retouch down the right edge on the ventral face. This may suggest the piece was reused or had double use as a side and …

One retouched flint blade of probably Mesolithic date. The blade is a tertiary piece with evidence in the form of aris and scars on the dorsal face for previous parallel removals from the same platform. There is a very small bub of percussion at the proximal end. The distal end is snapped at an angle. A notch adjacent to this snap suggests it was deliberate and part of the process of making microliths. It is made in mid grey opaque flint with pale mottling and 32.6mm long, 15.6mm wide, 4.7mm thick and weighs 2.36g.

Two pieces of flint debitage of Mesolithic to early Neolithic date. Both are pieces of snapped blades or flakes, one the distal end and possibly wide enough to have been a flake, the other is the centre of a long blade. Both show scars on the dorsal face from repeated previous blade like removals from the same platform. The distal end is a tertiary piece in dark grey / black flint and may have some chips from use at the end although no clear retouch. The middle bit of blade is a secondary piece with cortex down one side in mid-grey flint with paler mottling. They weigh 5.02g together.
