Complete reworked flint flake, possibly a scraper, probably dating from the Neolithic to the Bronze Age (c. 4000 - 801 BC). The flint is discoidal in shape with a smooth unworked ventral face, on which a bulb of percussion is evident. The distal face has semi-abrupt scaled retouch around 70% of the edge. The unworked section of the distal face retains a rough, light grey cortex. Otherwise the flint is a translucent dark grey colour with some mottling. The length of the flint flake is 40.59mm, it is 35.73mm in width and 9.96mm thick. The weight of the flake is 17.58g.
