A complete flint worked flake of Mesolithic date (9000-3450BC). The lithic is sub ovate in plan and plano-convex in section. The dorsal surface contains three predominant negative scars with corresponding arises. The distal and right hand edges contain semi abrupt retouch. The proximal edge has been abruptly blunted. The ventral surface is predominantly smooth. The lithic retains some cortex along the left hand edge and is therefore a secondary flake.

The flint is a dark grey in colour. The cortex is cream in colour.
