Any other details or information

Predominantly black flint throughout. No rubble. All flints are smoothed faced and of similar size. Given the regularity of size and shape many of the are possibly the cores left over after flaking.

There is no galleting as the flints are laid very close.

The coursing is mostly regular, particularly on the lower parts, becoming more irregular
