Grey flint with limited recortification, scraper, as kindly identified by the finder. An irregular trapezoid flake with large parallel flakes struck by unidirectional invasive angled hard hammer working from the dorsal side, and with an irregularly fractured ventral surface. The reformation of cortex is interrupted by this working, which may suggest the reuse of a previously discarded chunk. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC.
