DEBITAGE

Unique ID: SF-D39090

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

A large fragment of flintworking debitage of probable Neolithic to early Bronze Age date. A pointed-oval tertiary flake. There is a small amount of irregular, short, semi-abrupt retouch along the curved left edge of the dorsal face. The bulb is prominant and the butt narrow. The ridges of the dorsal face have been worn smooth, probably a result of natural corrosion. The flint is a mottled opaque buff-grey colour.
