Flint cores, Mark Farm, Castle Kennedy

Period:
Neolithic
Description:

A selection of flint cores.  These are the waste pieces created when flakes and blades have been removed from a flint cobble.

 

Hundreds of flint tools were found in ploughed fields at Mark Farm in the 1930s.  They mark the site of a fairly large Neolithic settlement.  Many of these flints were collected by local farm workers and given to the local minister, R. G. Anderson.
