Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

Complete worked flint flake, probably dating from the Neolithic to the Bronze Age (c. 4000 - 801 BC). The flint is irregular in shape, almost oval, and slightly convex. The distal face retains its rough grey-brown cortex save for a section of short, abrupt and scaled retouch along 40% of the edge. The ventral face is unworked and reveals the mottled translucent grey colour of the flint. The worked flake is 40.93mm in length, 36.44mm in width and 11.06mm in thickness. The weight of the flint is 22.32g.
