Unique ID: HAMP-877603

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

A Neolithic/ Bronze Age (c. 4000 - 800 BC) lithic implement (possibly) on a secondary flake, with cortex at the distal tip. It is triangular in shape with a wide bulb of percussion to the reverse. It is triangular in cross-section at the distal end, the ventral face being flattish, with a triangular flake removal to the dorsal proximal end giving a concave profile here. Right and left dorsal edges have short, scaled, semi-arbupt retouch. The flint is grey/ brown in colour and opaque, with some light milky-coloured patination spotting. It measures 47.9mm in length, 33.3mm in max.width, 12.7mm in max.thickness and weighs 17.67g.
