Flint tools discovered near Thatcham

Accession Number:

NEBYM:1951.23.1, NEBYM:1951.23.2, NEBYM:1951.23.3

These Mesolithic tools were discovered near the sewage works at Thatcham.  The tools include a knife with serrated edges on its blade.  A scraper and a flake that also has a serrated edge.  The serration on the edges of the blades suggests they were deliberately added by whoever made the blades, rather than being the result of breaking flakes off a core.
