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

A mesolithic blade flint flake or possible waste flake, dating from 8300 – 3500 BC. Multiple bladelet / microlith flakes have previously been removed from the surface of the microlith. The microlith shows signs of retouch. Both terminals are broken.

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.
