‘Johnstone’ hollow based point made for Andrea’s birthday

johnstone-2

This is a development from the ‘johnstone’, or bathroom cistern knapped previously into a leaf-point form. It is a development because it has been completely bifacially retouched. It was made for the birthday of a friend of ours, Andrea, and has re-invigorated my enthusiasm for this material. It is harder to work than glass and most similar to ‘cherty’, coarse grained flint.
