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

An assemblage of eleven pieces of debitage of Late Neolithic to Early Bronze Age date (c. 2700 - 1601 BC). The assemblage consists of ten flakes and one blade. They vary in length from 67.42mm to 30.88mm and in width from 52.13mm to 17.17mm. Their collective weight is 274.44g. Eight pieces retain between c. 5% and 35% cortex on their surface and have been struck off secondary flakes. The other two retain no traces of cortex and have been struck off tertiay flakes. Where bulbs of pecussion are visible, they are large with prominent ripple marks, indicating some hard hammer working. There is no sign of retouch on any of the pieces. The pieces vary in colour from dark grey to a cloudy milky white. Many of the pieces show traces of iron staining.

Notes:

These pieces were brought in as part of a larger assemblage of flint tools and debitage found around the same location.
