Unique ID: PUBLIC-2910E0

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

Small blade like flake of tertiary debitage of probable earlier Neolithic date (3500 - 2500 BC). The flake is an irregular rectangular shape and is formed on a mottled grey coloured flint. The upper edge is snapped and a number of vertical flake scars are present on the dorsal face. The ventral face is unworked. The long edges are feathered with abrupt retouch - although this is most likely to be as a result of movement in the ploughsoil - ratherthann deliberate reworking. The flake measures 26.4mm long, 18.4mm wide, 4.1mm thick, and weighs 1.3 grams.
