County: Somerset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Mesolithic knapped flint core, roughly cylindrical in shape with one prepared striking platform at one end. Although the platform is roughly oval, there are multipile facets around the edge, mostly anguler and broken. The surface has a white craze cracking which is the result of being burnt and this burning has also resulted in several sections cracking away including the distal end, leaving characteristic jagged, hackly, often concave, surfaces. The remaining surface shows evidence of a number of parallel blades having been removed from all around the sides. It is 35.4mm long, 30.…
