A possible coarse flint denticulate/scraper hybrid tool likely dating to the late Bronze Age or Iron age c.1000BC - 0BC .

Description: The scraper was produced from a secondary flake, possibly accidentally created. The scraper is semi-circular in plan. Barring the retouch along the curved edge there is little obvious flaking, likely indicating the use of a natural or accidental flake, typical of flint manufacture after the middle Bronze Age. The curved edge has short scaled semi-abrupt retouch producing a scraping edge. At the top edge is a denticulate removal creating an indent with short scaled abrupt retouch. The Flint is mottled light and dark grey and has some off white patination along it.

Measurements: 49.73mm long, 31.31mm wide, 12.06mm thick and 16.83g in weight.
