This gunflint was recovered from a camp site in Trego County that was occupied periodically from the Middle Ceramic period through the Historic period. Gunflints were used to generate a spark in a flintlock musket or pistol and as strike-a-lights for lighting a fire. This blade gunflint has two dorsal arrisses and was quarried and manufactured in southern England.
