Microlith, Barsalloch South, Port William

Barsalloch South, Port William
A microlithic point with retouch along both edges and at the base.  The tip is absent - it may have been broken off when the point was being used.   A number of microliths like this were glued onto a wooden shaft with pine resin.  They were used as saws or as serrated cutting edges on an arrowshaft.  This point was collected by W.F. Cormack.
