Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated

A triangulate worked flint blade of Neolithic origin (3500-2100BC). The ventral surface has a small bulb of percussion with faint trace of the percussion ripples across the surface. The dorsal side has a single lateral edge/dorsal ridge, running the length of the blade with dorsal scarring along much of its length. The cutting edge is formed on the slightly convex side with direct parallel retouch, some of which looks to have been damaged through the passage of time.

The material is a multi coloured (pale cream/brown/red) and partly translucent flint with numerous inclusions of ferrous and perhaps, organic materials.
