Polished flint flake, Mark Farm, Castle Kennedy

Mark Farm, Castle Kennedy
A slender flake of flint, probably from a polished flint axe.  Flakes like this were produced as waste when axes were being reworked and resharpened.   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.
