Mesolithic Pick

This pick is most likely of a Mesolithic date, it was found along side other tools of its suspected period, some of which have been professionally recorded in the PAS database 

As with many prehistoric tools, there are small iron deposits, and iron staining in various places, this is usually found along the high ridges, where flake removal scars intersect.
