ARROWHEAD

Unique ID: NLM-13AF3C

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

Grey flint possible arrowhead fragment, as kindly identified by the finder. A thin flake fragment with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a rippled ventral surface. Angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows two converging edges. A straight edge opposite the longest of these is lost to a recent break. The surface bears a pale grey patina suggesting the object has endured a period of exposure to a calcareous environment. If indeed an arrowhead, the triangular form suspected would ally this to Late Neolithic and Early Bronze Age artefacts. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC.
