Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Group of fifty flint implements, thirteen of which are photographed here as the best worked pieces, including a leaf-shaped arrowhead, two gravers, three blades, three notched flakes and four scrapers, all dating from the Neolithic period c.4500-2100 BC. The majority of the group, eighteen, are waterworn waste pieces, or debitage, and there are thirteen worked waterworn flakes and six worked pieces apart from those illustrated here. The flint is mottled light to dark grey in colour with cortex remaining on some pieces, which is typical of the local beach flint found in the area.
