Retouched flint, Mark Farm, Castle Kennedy

Period:
Neolithic
Description:

A selection of flint flakes that have been retouched by blunting and shaping one or more edges.  They would have been used for a range of activities.

 

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.
