Chert Blank/Preform

One small secondary decortication flake with edge preparation. Uniform flake removals along the lateral edge of the dorsal surface. Ventral surface edge preparation failed and the edge is steep and the flake removals irregular. It is too small for a biface, but they were trying to achieve a bifacial edge. Based on size and configuration, the tool in preparation may have been a gunflint.
