DEBITAGE

Unique ID: HESH-CA2D56

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

An irregular flake of tertiary debitage dated to the Neolithic period (3500 - 2000 BC). The exterior edge of the waste flake has been reworked using small abrupt retouch which is distinctly different to the damage / flaking from plough roll. The dorsal face exhibits numerous flakes in one direction whilst the ventral is flaked in the opposite direction, the striking platform and bulb of percussion are clearly present on one of the long edges. This form of reworking of waste materials is relatively common in assemblages from the Marches. The flint is a mottled grey colour.

The flake measures 28.2mm length, 16.0mm wide and is 3.2mm thick; it weighs 1.6 grams.
