Neolithic to early Bronze Age (c. 4000 to 1000BC) scraper: The scraper appears to be knapped from a tertiary flake which is oval, and truncated at the proximal end. The dorsal surface has multiple re-touch scars which are scaled, invasive and abrupt, occurring on the distal end. The ventral surface has a prominent bulb of percussion, and conchoidal ripples. The bulb of percussion has also been partly removed by a flake. The scraper is knapped from flint which is a mottled mid grey. The surface of the scraper has a waxy texture. The scraper, measures 24.94mm long, 20.62mm wide and 10.05mm thick. It weighs 5.41g.

The scraper is probably a rounded/ end and side scraper and dates to the Neolithic or early Bronze Age periods, c. 4000 to 1000BC.
