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

A flint core of Neolithic to early Bronze Age date (c. 3501 - 1601 BC). The core features at least two platforms. It appears to have been used principally for the manufacture of blades. It exhibits a number of negative flake scars. It retains c. 20% cortex in a depression in the surface of the core. The flint is a mottled mid-light grey colour with a large number of inclusions which may have made it difficult to work.

The core measures 64.97mm in length, 60.27mm in width and weighs 154.27g.
