Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

A complete flint scraper/blade of Mesolithic date (9000-3450 BC). The lithic is sub-rectangular in plan and concaveo-convex in section. The dorsal surface has three predominant negative scars and corresponding arrises. The distal, left and right hand edges have fine, short, semi-abrupt retouch. The ventral surface has ripples of percussion emanating from the distal end. The lithic retains no cortex and is therefore a tertiary flake.

The flint is light cream in colour with cream and grey inclusions throughout.
