NEOLITHIC ROUGHOUT

Roughout for the manufacture of an axe made from what is likely to be an opaque, blotchy, light grey flint with full recortication. No cortex survives. Bifacially flaked to produce a lozenge section with some battering on edge. Both ends rounded, the removal of a large, mis-struck flake may have led to abandonment.. Length 78mm, Width 34mm, Thickness 24mm, Mass 67.5g.
