DEBITAGE

Unique ID: HESH-14ABA3

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

Thirteen pieces of secondary debitage, dated broadly to the later Mesolithic and Neolithic periods (4500-2100 BC). The flakes are all struck on poor quality flint which varies in coarseness and colour, all being glacial or riverine derived, some possibly being chert rather than flint. None of the waste flakes have been reworked / retouched to form other artefacts such as scrapers. The dorsal faces of some of the flakes show ridges and flake scars, the reverse faces show conchoidal ripples.

The flakes have a bulk weight of 78.17 grams
