Six flint lithic implements. Four are Mesolithic, two are Neolithic. From left to right, top to bottom: A1 Mesolithic flint microlith. Made on a flint blade, light mottled cream and grey opaque patina. Natural dorsal face, abrupt, crossed retouch along both edges. Early to Late Mesolithic -9000 to -4000. SK721 243 A2 Mesolithic flint snapped blade. heat affected flint. Appears to be a snapped microlithic blade but may have been retouched into an arrowhead, either in the Mesolithic or even Later Neolithic. Notched on the left for hafting with the natural thin-angled right edge. Ti…

Two Mesolithic flint lithic implements. From left to right: 1. Mesolithic flint segment. Tertiary flint flake or blade, patinated a light reddish-brown with some mid-brown recortication also present also. Proximal truncated, bi-directional dorsal scars. Possibly re-used material. A very small amount of retouch (short, parallel, semi-abrupt) on the ventral face on the right side. 2. Mesolithic flint flake. Tertiary flint flake, very light grey opaque patina. Step-fracture on distal end, parallel ridges on dorsal face. May have been used in a similar way to a segment as the right ed…

Mesolithic broken flint flake. Broken secondary flake, light blue and mid-greyish-blue opaque patina though mid-grey across the break. The break appears to have a small concave area of retouch so this is potentially evidence of the microburin technique.
