Fundraising drive for professional analysis of Tiree lithics assemblage

In a new initiative ACFA has launched a fundraising appeal to pay for a professional analysis of the 4000 worked flints and stone tools amassed as a result of our work on the Hebridean island of Tiree. One of these tools could be a rare Skaill knife used for butchering. Lithics expert Ann Clarke visited the island in May 2023 and has expressed her enthusiasm about the assemblage and the light that it might throw on the prehistory of Tiree.
