County: East Riding of Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A worked piece of flint flake, resembling the shape of a Neolithic leaf shaped arrowhead, but the working is too crude to be an arrowhead. The length of this artefact is more than twice the width and the sides are rounded and worked. The bulb of percussion and striking platform have both been removed, there is some evidence of retouch along the length of the flake. There is a large flaw in the matrix in the flint, which would have rendered this flake as useless. The flint is a light whitish-grey colour with some lighter flaws.
