Object type: BLADE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Cheshire West and Chester
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Early Neolithic flint blade. The blade is trapezoidal in shape and in cross-section. 2 flakes have been knapped from one face, one on each side. One edge of the tool has been worked to give it a serrated edge. The tool has broken and so is incomplete- it would have been longer when it was made.
