Flint implement, possibly an unfinished scraper, Neolithic- Bronze Age in date.

It is made from a light-grey flint with white patches. It is almost semi-circular in plan and is curved at the flat end. The curved edge appears to have some retouch although this is not extensive. Conchoidal ripples are visible from the flat base up towards the curved edge.
