NEOLITHIC KNIFE

A flint knife dating from the Late Neolithic or Early Bronze Age. The knife is formed on a sub-circular flake with cortex on the proximal end and scalar retouch on the proximal right side. There may be further retouch on the other sides but it is difficult to see because the flint is crystalline and crazed. The flint is dark grey and has no patina.
