Flint cores, Mark Farm, Castle Kennedy

Mark Farm, Castle Kennedy
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.
