LITHIC IMPLEMENT

Unique ID: SUSS-A327A2

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

A waste flake dating from the Mesolithic period (circa 8300 – 3500 BC). Numerous blade flakes have been removed from the dorsal surface before this flake itself was removed. There is some retouch on the flake.

Notes:

These flints form part of a large collection of lithic implements and associated waste flakes. The finder was collecting flints from the 1960 onwards up to the present day. The collection spans areas in East Sussex and Kent. Known as the Lambert Collection these lithic implements are housed by the finder and are available for further study should someone want to research the flints further. These database entries are a basic record of what is contained within the collection. The finder can be contacted via the local Finds Liaison Officer.
