Full Description

A flaked flint tool found while fieldwalking on 23/11/1979. About 7cm long, it may be a small Neo axe, for there appears to be a small area which shows polishing near the thicker end, which predates the flaking. Made from high quality black flint. Small flakes have been taken from the thinner end, possibly to facilitate, or as a result of hafting. (1)
