Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

A complete knapped flint end scraper of probable Late Neolithic to Middle Bronze Age date, c. 3000-1500 BC. Manufactured on a tertiary flake of translucent brownish fine-grained flint with only a small patch of cortex on its dorsal surface, the support has had its proximal end intentionally removed. The scraper is effectively horseshoe shaped, a single dorsal arrise visible and secondary working (in the form of directly applied parallel long removals) creating a convex working edge at the distal end of the piece. Preserved in fresh condition it measures 38.59mm in length down its axis of percussion, 23.01mm wide at its midpoint by 5.21mm thick, and weighs 6.15g.
