LITHIC IMPLEMENT

Unique ID: DUR-6AE228

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Published Find published

Two lithic implements of likely Mesolithic date (9000-3450 BC). The lithics are sub-triangular in profile and have fine semi-abrupt retouch to at least one edge. Neither lithic retains any cortex and they are therefore both tertiary flakes.

The flint is cream in colour.

Length: 17.31mm, Width: 9.29mm, Thickness: 3.59mm, Weight: 0.5g.
Length: 9.75mm, Width: 6.14mm, Thickness: 2.11mm, Weight: 0.2g.
