Number 3 on the attached photographs. A crude waste blade flake, weighing 4.76g. Early Mesolithic to Late Mesolithic (circa 8300 - 3500 BC). The striking platform is very small, and shows signs of preparation. The bulb of percussion can be seen on the ventral surface. There is a protruding knot at the tip of the dorsal face and possible evidence of retouch where an attempt has been made to remove it.
