Neolithic to early Bronze Age (c. 4000 to 1000BC) scraper: The scraper appears to be knapped from a tertiary flake which is a sub-oval. The dorsal surface has multiple re-touch scars which are invasive and abrupt, occurring on the distal end. The ventral surface has invasive scars which have removed the bulb of percussion, and conchoidal ripples. The scraper is knapped from flint which is a mottled mid grey. It measures 19.12mm long, 18.91mm wide, 8.96mm thick and weighing 4.05g.

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