Neolithic flint arrowhead

A finely worked flint arrowhead recovered from a prehistoric layer in the 2010 excavations.  The leaf-shaped form is typical of the Early Neolithic period, around 3000 BC.  It was perhaps lost by a hunter searching for food in the area.  Other prehistoric flints from the excavations suggest that Neolithic settlers were living at East Cliff.
