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

Mesolithic to Neolithic (-8300 to -2100) debitage: The knapped flint flake is probably either a core rejuvenation flake or sharpening flake. It is knapped from a mottled mid grey to light grey flint which has a waxy texture. One edge has re-touch on the dorsal surface which also has flake scars. The edges are otherwise unmodified. The ventral surface has a single scar, and recent damage.

It weighs 7.25g and measures 35.94mm long, 28.09mm wide and 7.91mm thick.

The flake probably dates to the Mesolithic to Neolithic period.
