Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

A complete flint scraper of Mesolithic date (9000-3450BC). The lithic is sub-rectangular in plan and concaveo-convex in section. The dorsal surface contains 2 predominant negative scars with corresponding arises. The most distal scar on the dorsal surface contains ripples of percussion emanating from the distal edge. The right hand of the dorsal surface is covered by retained cortex. The distal, right and left hand edges show short, parallel, semi abrupt retouch. The proximal end has been abruptly blunted. The ventral surface is concave and predominantly smooth. The lithic retains some cortex on the dorsal surface and is therefore a secondary flake.

The flint is a dark grey in colour with cream and darker grey inclusions throughout. The cortex is also a dark grey
