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

Finely-worked arrowhead made from pale brown-grey flint. The arrowhead is triangular in shape and has been bifacially worked. It does not appear to be tanged or barbed, although the base is slightly hollowed. The point has broken off. The arrowhead appears to have been finished using the ‘pressure-flaking’ technique and there is some evidence of retouch around the edges. The scraper found in close proximity to the arrowhead appears to have been made from the same type of flint.
