A flint End scraper of probable early Neolithic date. The tool has been manufactured from a broad, short flake of roughly semi-circular form. The surface of the dark grey flint has is a heavily patinated blueish-white colour. At the proximal end is a wide area of core platform. The ventral surface is roughly flat at the proximal end and slopes downwards to the convex distal end. Approximately three quarters of the convex scraping edge has been finely re-touched. In the area between this scraping edge and the platform is a jagged protrusion which retains cortex. On the ventral face working is confined to a specific portion of the edge, where two or three narrow flakes have been removed to create an indentation. The tool measures 42.5mm long, 52.1mm wide and 14.2mm thick. The weight is 40.2g.
