A large flint implement, probably of early Bronze Age date, worked from a secondary flake of mottled grey brown flint. The flake is broadly comma-shaped with a pointed projection and a concave edge, both of which have evidence of crude semi-abrupt retouch. This suggests an intentional use as a piercer or hollow scraper or a combination of functions.
