Neolithic to Bronze Age irregularly shaped multi-platform flint core, which shows signs of working on almost every surface apart from one area covering about a tenth of the surface, where the worn outer surface of the flint pebble remains. This working takes the form of many irregular scars where small flakes of varying shapes have been removed from multiple platforms including at least two at right angles. There are also a range of later removals due to accidental damage which have removed parts of worked areas. The undiagnostic nature of these scars makes it difficult to date the c…
