DEBITAGE

Unique ID: NLM-12C8BD

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

Burnt flint debitage. A chip with broader and narrower flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a concave ventral surface. Crazing suggests the chip was then burnt. It has subsequently collected a dense creamy patina suggesting its prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment. Suggested date: Late Mesolithic, 7000-4000 BC
