CORE

Unique ID: DOR-ECDBB1

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

A flint core produced during the process of blade manufacture. The core is conical in shape and has two platforms; there is a primary platform with working around almost all of its circumference and some minimal opposed end flaking from a secondary platform at the tip. The flint is opaque, mid to light grey with a high-gloss patina. A small area of cortex remains covering no more than 5% of the surface. Multiple linear blade removal scars are visible around all sides. There is no significant evidence for platform dressing or abrasion.

Date: Late Mesolithic to early Neolithic 7000 BC to 3500 BC.

Dimensions: 60.6mm x 57.6mm x 39.2mm.

Weight: 130g.
