No. 1 on the attached photograph. A late Upper Palaeolithic non-geometic microlith, dating from 11,000 BC to 8,300 BC. Multiple bladelet / flakes have previously been removed from the surface of the flake. There is evidence of retouch.

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. Re-identified by Chris Butler in November 2007. The description given follows this new identification.
