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

Mottled grey flint with cortex and with misty patina on one side, core fragment. Flint with broad parallel flakes removed from its dorsal side and with a prominent bulb on the ventral. The ventral surface is lightly patinated whereas the others are not, suggesting this flake was exposed for a period before being reworked. Further parallel flakes are trimmed from a surface meeting that struck dorsal surface described above, which was the striking platform used for that episode. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC.

Height: 26.4mm, Width: 37.3mm, Thickness: 14.4mm, Weight: 18.31gms.

Evidence of reuse: Interruption of patina by retouch
