ARROWHEAD

Unique ID: LVPL-BB2D23

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

The object is sub-triangular in plan with a lozenge shaped cross-section. The flint has a rounded point and two seperate barbs. There is no central tang and it does not appear that one has broken away. The object has short parallel long angled retouch along each edge and is flaked on each surface. One long edge measures 5mm thick, while the opposite long edge is just 2mm thick. The arrowhead is on a light grey flint with no remaining cortex.

Dimensions: 53mm in lenght, 25mm in width (at base), 3.5mm in width (at tip), 5.5mm thick, 5.4g.

Notes:

This flint object is not typical of local flint and therefore is likely to be an exotic antiquarian import brought over as a curiosity and subsequently lost.
