Quick Reference

[Ar]

A kind of large flint projectile point used during the Neolithic in the British Isles. Usually lozenge‐shaped in outline with slightly convex curves on the leading edges. Finely made, and sometimes polished and ground on the large flat sides, presumably to reduce the weight and produce a thinner blade.
