DEBITAGE

Unique ID: BERK-E7B3F0

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Published Find published

A collection of 89 flint debitage pieces of varying size, shape and colour, dating from the Mesolithic to Neolithic period (c. 10,000 - 2350 BC). The collection consists of flakes and blade-like pieces and chunks, mostly undiagnostic but considering the rest of the assemblage probably of Mesolithic or Neolithic date. Most of the pieces are made on a blue-grey flint, some with white or grey patina. Cortex survives on about 10% of the pieces.

These objects are part of a larger collection from what appears to be a multiphase site.
