DEBITAGE

Unique ID: NLM-2DC2E8

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

Pale grey flint possible debitage. A triangular flake with broad and narrow flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a bulb and striking platform at one corner of the ventral surface. The finder kindly suggests an identification as a possible chisel or transverse arrowhead, though which side would serve as cutting edge is uncertain. Dense misty patina suggests the object has endured prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC
