Black Pennines chert microlith possibly Late Mesolithic to Early Neolithic 6500-2900 BC. The chert is a dull black in colour with traces of the original white banding at the distal end. The surface reveals traces of weathering but this would be consistent with the original working of the weathered face for extraction. There are known sources of black chert in the South Pennines and is naturally occurring in beds on Pendle Hill and in the local glacial dumped material. The length is 9mm, width 6mm, thickness 5mm and the weight is 1.63g.
