Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

Complete rounded flint scraper probably dating from the Neolithic (c. 4000 - 2300 BC). The scraper is largely circular in shape with a flat and smooth ventral face and a bulbous distal face that has invasive and scaled semi-abrupt retouch covering approximately 60% of the surface. The flint is translucent and grey in colour, with some small white patches. There is a patch of cortex on the distal face covering the unworked section. There is a small short, scaled and semi-abrupt retouched section along the edge on the ventral face corresponding to the cortex on the distal face. The scraper is 30.15mm in length and 26.41mm in width, with a thickness of 6.81mm and a weight of 7.13g.
