Flint and Pottery

Post by TheAndyA » Sun Nov 10, 2019 8:57 pm

This is the only piece of Flint that I've seen so far on this permission, it was laying on the surface and it seems to have a worked look to it?

The flint looks like part of a struck blade! ::g Bit difficult to date though.

Your Pottery with the inclusions looks like it could be a sherd of Roman mortarium.

Wonderful finds. ::g

The rough shard could be from a rub scale (right word? is google translated).
I think that is what Bes99 also trying to say.

The other shard for me looks like lokal roman era pottery.
In my country i would say it could also be early medieval as those started in about 350bc when roman era ended, but if i am right roman era lasted longer with you and 'early ME' started later.
So dating this shard about 0-700BC?

The stone to me looks like a part of a Late Mesolitic / Neolitic blade, where on experience i would go for Neolitic most.
An example.
