Flint blades, Mark Farm, Castle Kennedy

Mark Farm, Castle Kennedy
A selection of short blades.  Some were used as simple knives.  Others would have been reworked into arrowheads, points and scrapers.   Hundreds of flint tools were found in ploughed fields at Mark 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.
