Late Neolithic or early Bronze Age (c. 2500 to 1500 B.C) end scraper: The flint scraper is knapped from a mottled light beige coloured flint. In plan it is a sub-oval and in profile almost semi-circular with a slightly flattened apex on the dorsal face. The dorsal face (the face with the most scars) has retouch around the lateral edges and the distal end. The retouch is formed by long, narrow parallel negative scars. The angle of the retouch is c. 45 degrees. On the dorsal surface there is a patch of cortex remaining. The ventral face (smooth face) has bulbar scars, bulb of percussion and ripples. The scraper is 19.85mm long and is 13.76mm wide. It weighs 1.4g.

The scraper dates to the late Neolithic or early Bronze Age periods, c. 2500 to 1500 B.C.
