28 Burnt flints Mesolithic-Neolithic Length 37mm, width 27mm, 25mm, to 10mm by8mm by 4mm None of the artefacts within this group were originally used as tools although all show signs of being working and is therefore flint working waste. All of the flints have an off white to grey patina and all are covered in minute cracks all over its surface. This style of patina and method of cracking is typical of flints that have been left in a prolonged, intense heat, such as that produced by a bonfire/hearth. These are part of a la…

Most of the artefacts have one arise running down the centre, in some cases this divides in to two arrises halfway down the length of the blade. The remaining blades have two arriese running down their length. On all of the blades there is a semicircular recess knapped into the side of the blade (12mm long to 2mm long), half of backed blades are in the top third of the blade and on the other half it is halfway down. The patina of the fl…
