Object type: CORE
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Distal end of a probably conical core. Worked around two thirds of the circumference with unretouched cortex on the other face. The cortex suggests pebble flint.

The flint is pale grey with paler mottling. It is 25.9mm long, 23.7mm by 15.0mm at the platform and weighs 12.40 grams. This style of…
