Used flint blades, Mark Farm, Castle Kennedy

Mark Farm, Castle Kennedy
These flint blades all show signs of wear along one or more edges.  This indicates that they have been used as simple tools, probably knives.   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.
