DEBITAGE

Unique ID: NARC-1C768F

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

A complete flint piece of Debitage of Neolithic to Bronze Age date (3450-800 BC). The object is sub-triangular in plan and plano-convex in section. The dorsal surface has two predominant negative scars and corresponding arrises. The proximal end has been abruptly blunted. All other edges have semi-abrupt retouch with some short scaled flaking at the distal end. The ventral surface is slightly convex due to a small bulb of percussion situated at the distal end. The lithic retains no cortex and is therefore a tertiary flake.

The flint is cream in colour with brown inclusions throughout.

Length: 18.22mm, Width: 21.98mm, Thickness: 4.21mm, Weight: 1.3g.
