Flint implement, a scraper or blade, Neolithic- Bronze Age in date.

The flint is varied in colour with a base colour of light brown and patches of white, grey and black. It is sub-rectangular in plan with rounded ends. One long side has been made narrower through a long flake being removed and some slight retouching- this is the blade/scraper edge. The bulb of percussion is visible on the reverse at the top when seen in the photograph.
