Object type: LITHIC IMPLEMENT
Broad period: BRONZE AGE
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lithic flake implement of probable Bronze Age date c. 2500 - 800BC. The implement is composed of dark grey flint with mottled light grey inclusions.

The flake was likely knapped via hard hammer technique as the curving fracture scar on the ventral face suggests that it was removed with significant force and perhaps with limited precision. There is evidence of …
