Full Description

A small flint flake, produced by knapping a flint nodule, was recovered from the spoil heap during a watching brief in January 2009. The flake features part of the outer cortex of the nodule and the entire flake had been subject to a 'milky' white patination. The flake can be broadly dated to the later prehistoric period, any time during the Neolithic to Bronze Age periods.
