A complete flint (chert) worked flake of Mesolithic date (9000-3450 BC). The lithic is sub-rectangular in plan and concaveo-convex in section. The dorsal surface is covered with granular retained cortex. All of the edges show semi- abrupt retouch. The ventral surface is concave with some scarring. The lithic retains some cortex on the dorsal surface and is therefore a secondary flake. The flint (chert) is a dark grey in colour with lighter inclusions throughout. The cortex is cream grey in colour. Dimensions: Length- 15.45mm, Width- 19.38mm, Thickness- 4.67mm, Weight- 1.5g

A flint blade probably dating to the Neolithic, c. 4000 to 2700 BC. The object is pentagonal in plan with two long parallel sides, a short side joining them at one end and at the opposite side a point. The dorsal side features two parallel faces. There is a possible break on the right when looking at the dorsal side and another break creating the short side. There is some very limited short, scaled retouch at a low angle. The flint is a dark greyish brown in colour. The object is 38.00 mm in length, 13.11 mm in width and 4.13 mm in thickness. The object weighs 2.6g.

A group of three flint debitage of probable Mesolithic date (9000-3450 BC). The lithics are sub-rectangular and sub-triangular in profile, and concave-convex in section. On the dorsal surfaces there are a small number of negative scars with corresponding arrises. Upon the ventral surface of one lithic there is a clear bulb or percussion with corresponding cracking ripples, while one also has a number of negative scars along the ventral surface. Two of the lithics have remains of cortex and are therefore secondary, while the other has none and is thus tertiary. The lithics range in …

A piece of flint debitage of Mesolithic date, circa 9,000 - 4,000 BC, in the form of a blade. It is a tertiary flake and therefore retains no cortex on its surface. The dorsal face exhibits 5 negative flake scars from previous flake removal. The proximal end has a striking platform and low bulb of percussion, with faint conchoidal ripple marks present on the ventral face. The flint is mid grey-brown in colour with dark grey inclusions. It measures 29.03mm in length, 18.20mm in width, 1.94mm in thickness and weighs 2.18g.
