A flint flake with no evidence of ‘re-touch’ along any edge. There is a clear bulb of percussion with corresponding ripples down the length of the piece on the ventral side. The dorsal surface is covered by negative scars, hackles and ridges. While not officially a blade as its length is not quite twice its width, it could have been used as a blade. It is a mottled grey colour.
