Jarrow Slake, flint flake
Tools and Equipment
In 1887 T. Hodgkin, secretary of the Society of Antiquaries of Newcastle, reported that his son had found a worked flint at Jarrow, 2.5 inches long, while on an antiquarian pilgrimage. In 1903 G.B. Hodgson reported that "A worked flint, 2.25 inches long, was discovered near Jarrow Slake, in the early eighties...". The two objects may be the same.
