DEBITAGE

Unique ID: DUR-CB3C4C

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

A complete flint worked flake of Mesolithic date (9000-3450BC). The lithic is sub-rectangular in plan and concaveo-convex in section. The dorsal surface contains multiple predominant negative scars with corresponding arises. The proximal, right and left hand edges have been abruptly blunted while the distal edge show short, parallel, semi abrupt retouch. The ventral surface and left hand side are covered with retained cortex and the lithic is therefore a secondary flake. The ventral surface also contains a negative scar at the distal end. The lithic retains no cortex and is therefore a tertiary flake.

The flint is a grey in colour. The cortex is a light grey.
