Prehistoric flint blade core and blade fragment?

The core is 38mm long, 30mm wide and 13mm thick with a weight of 16.80grams. It has a sub rectangular form and section. On one side it retains a pebble like shape with cortex largely intact and on the opposite face it has had several long removals taken from a flater end.

The blade fragment? is 36mm long, 20mm wide and 7mm thick with a weight of 5.45grams. The object is rectangular in form and sub rectangular in cross section. It has been broken at each end and has a large patch of cortex still attached to one side, from which extend a few removals along the centre of the upper surface.
