Flint with cortex strip [one only]; debitage. Four flakes with broad flakes struck from their dorsal sides by hard hammer strike, and with a bulb on the ventral surface of the largest, Two more have concave ventral surfaces, while the dorsal and ventral sides are indistinguishable on the last and longest flake. Dense creamy patina has developed over all struck surfaces, suggesting these objects have endured prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment after their deposition. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC.
