Stone Tools

Lithics, including flint strike-a-lights and gun flints, are found well into the historic period on sites, but in the past have received little attention (Hardy and Wickham-Jones 2009). Assessing use in the post-medieval period requires good dating. Gun flints have received the most attention (see Ballin 2012), but there has been little work on Highland material.
