Full description

2000. Stray find. Found on beach.
P.A. Robins (NCM) identified:
Retouched flake. Oval flake of speckled, pinkish buff; flint with an usual 'corregated' surface on the ventral face. Extensive fine retouch around the perimeter, but rolled or worn and with a glossy surface. The NGR suggests a beach or dune find, which is consistent with the rolled condition.
Undatable Prehistoric.
K. Hinds (NLA), 30 August 2000.
