Object Description

A Clactonian point skilfully crafted from flint. The original stone was modelled into a bifacial tear-drop shaped point featuring sharp, irregular edges. The deliberately detached sections on the body and edges reveal the natural light brown striations of the stone. The old collection number and site of finding are written in black ink on the surface. As revealed from the note, this particular tool was recovered at the British site of Twydall.

Date: Circa 400.000 BC
