This is a semi-circular scraper. The ventral face has a pronounced bulb but no retouch. The dorsal face has semi-abrupt and abrupt retouch to the distal end and both lateral margins. the proximal end has been cleanly snapped or is the flattened stricking platform from the core. The flint is dark grey in colour with light grey flecks and its secondary cortex suggests a nodular origin.

Bond 2004 has a similar piece illustrated on Page 56, Fig 5.24 No L40 which he places in the neolithic period.
