Record ID: NCL-253FE4
Object type: ARROWHEAD
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: County Durham
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A knapped flint arrowhead of the Neolithic. The arrowhead is completely knapped, with no natural surfaces of the flint. The blade is leaf-shaped with a trapezoidal tang. The tang was originally longer, but the tip has broken off, leaving a relatively fresh break with little abrading. The abraded edges of the arrowhead were pressure flaked.
