Record ID: LVPL-77D1A1
Object type: FLAKE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Dark grey flint flake with broad striking platform and prominent bulb of percussion and bulbar scar, suggesting removal from a large flint nodule with a hard hammer such as a pebble. The flint is good quality and may most likely be of river gravel origin. The flake has been broken laterally and the irregular damage along the upper left hand side may be natural post-depositional damage rather than through use, although the latter is not impossible particularly if the lateral break to the flake was deliberate, although there is no way of knowing whether this was the case. This is distin…
