Object type: CORE
Broad period: PALAEOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Large flint nodule from which flakes have been removed. On one face there is a very worn natural fracture, probably frost shatter. Flakes have been removed from the core, working mostly from one end. This end appears to have been prepared with flakes removed from the frost shattered side to create a platform to work off. The flakes are large and some appear possibly blade like. There also appear to be some natural fractures and chips around the edge, obscuring some details of the original working. It is 86.3mm long, 72.5 wide and 19.7 thick and weighs 157 grams. The entire piece is ve…
