Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

Possibly Mesolithic small opposed platform core of lightly patinated dark grey flint with three patches of cortex to the ventral face with flake scars struck from one edge and one end. The dorsal face has opposed blade-like flake scars overlapping at the mid-point; one has spread out and has terminated in a hinge, rendering further flake removals difficult.
