DEBITAGE

Unique ID: DUR-CC3E86

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

A group of 3 flint worked flakes of Mesolithic date (9000-3450 BC). The lithics are sub-triangular in plan and concaveo-convex in section. Lithics no 1 and 2 contain a small amount of cortex (on the distal end of the dorsal surface in lithic no. 1 and on the proximal edge of lithic no. 2) and are therefore secondary flakes. Lithic no. 3 retains no cortex and is therefore a tertiary flake.

The flakes are a grey brown in colour. The cortex is a light grey/cream.
