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

Flint implement, probably an unfinished arrowhead, most likely Neolithic in date.

In cross-section it is triangular with a central ridge running the length where two flakes have been removed. Both long sides have been worked with small pieces having been chipped off. The base of the arrowhead has been worked to start to form the shaft but it is not complete. The flint is a light grey with large white patches.
