Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

A group of 4 flint utilised waste flakes of Mesolithic date (9000-3450 BC). The lithics are sub-rectangular in plan and plano-convex in section. Lithic no. 4 shows short, parallel, semi abrupt retouch on the left, right and distal edges. Lithics no. 1 and 3 contain some shallow ripples of percussion on the ventral surface, emanating from the proximal edge of lithic 1 and the left hand edge on lithic 3 Lithics no. 1 and 3 retain some cortex (on the right hand edge of lithic 1 and on the dorsal surface of lithic 3) and are therefore secondary flakes. Lithic no. 2 and no. 4 retain no cortex and are therefore tertiary flakes.

The flakes are a dark grey in colour. The cortex is a dark grey.
