DEBITAGE

Unique ID: NLM-8E82EB

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

Dark grey brown flint debitage. A tiny thick rhomboid flake with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a bulbar ventral surface. Very short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal side may form a serrated edge which is more readily felt than observed. The lack of patina may hint at its subsequent incorporation into a sealed deposit. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC
