Flint flake, Stranraer

Period:
Neolithic
Description:

Large flake of grey flint.  There are wear marks along both edges - this suggests the flake has been used as a simple knife.  It is hard to date objects like this but its large size indicates a Neolithic date.

 

Found in a garden at Ladies Walk, Stranraer.
