Flint possible debitage. Four small irregular flakes, all with flakes struck from their dorsal sides; three retains elements of a bulbar ventral surface while the fourth and longest has a tiny bulb at one end of a concave ventral surface. A dense creamy patina suggests all have endured prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment after their deposition. The finder kindly notes the absence of naturally occurring flint in the vicinity, which has encouraged the consideration of these pieces.

Flint with reformed cortex possible scraper. A long irregular flake with a broad flake struck from its dorsal side and with a bulb at one end of a gently undulating ventral surface. Cortex has reformed over a rounded end, where possible scalar retouch executed from the ventral aspect also appears. The opposite end is lightly battered. A dense creamy patina overall suggests the object has endured long exposure to a calcareous environment; orange spots might suggest its incorporation in gravel. The re-formed cortex might suggest an earlier date than the apparently casual working would co…

Flint with cortex spot probable scraper. An irregular flake with broad and narrow flakes trimmed from its dorsal side and with a bulb on its undulating ventral surface. Short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect forms a hollow on one long edge - the smaller of two on the same side; both hollows might have been used to trim shafts. A dense creamy patina suggests the object has endured long exposure to a calcareous environment after its deposition. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC Length: 75.5mm, Width: 37mm, Thickness: 14.6mm, Weight: 37.42gms
