Flint implement, possible side scraper (unfinished), probably Neolithic- Bronze Age in date.

It is made from a grey flint with lighter and white patches. It has some of the cortex remaining along the left side (when viewed in the photograph). The base appears to have been the bulb of percussion, the top end is broken. The right hand long edge (when viewed in the photograph) has been retouched and so this appears to be the edge meant to be used. It has a notch taken out in the middle.
