A possible flint waste flake reutilised as a serrate implement or denticulate of uncertain age, possibly Late Bronze Age to Iron Age in date?

Description: The flake is a tertiary flake and ovoid in plan. It has had long thin removals on the ventral face. Along the left edge of the ventral face are a number of irregular short scaled abrupt to semi-abrupt removals. It is uncertain how intentioanl these removals are however. At the bottom right corner edge of the ventral side is some short scaled abrupt retouch. The entire flint is mottled beige and white with some iron stiaining and concretions adhering to it.

Measurements: 74.34mm long, 42.29mm wide, 9.27mm thick and 29.31g in weight.
