LITHIC IMPLEMENT

Unique ID: CPAT-5CCB46

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

A small fragment of flint that has evidence of having been worked by man, probably during the Neolithic. It may be a fragment of a larger implement. The ventral side has clear ripples running away from the now broken edge. On close inspection, the 'point' (partly missing) has good parallel bifacial re-touch. The dorsal surface is marked by lighter and slightly coarser inclusions to one side running the length of the artefact. The material is a light brown flint.
