A complete flint scraper of Mesolithic date (9500-4300 BC). The lithic is sub-rectangular in profile with an abruptly blunted proximal end. The dorsal surface is flaked at the distal and left hand edges, the remainder of the surface is covered in cortex, this scraper is therefore a primary flake. There is fine retouch to the distal, left and right hand sides. The ventral surface is smooth and contains one negative scar at the distal end and ripples of percussion running from the distal to the proximal end. The flint is a light grey in colour with cream inclusions throughout. The cor…

Incomplete segment of a snapped flint blade of probable late Mesolithic date (6500BC - 3500BC). The flint tool is sub-rectangular in plan and sub-triangular in cross section. It measures 24.7mm length, 16.4mm width, is 6.3mm (max) thick and weighs 2.23 grams. The flint blade probably consists of the upper and central part of the blade and a trimmed bulb of percussion can be seen on the reverse face.

A Mesolithic (probably) flint flake (8,300-4,500BC). The flake is a secondary flake with approximately 10% cortex remaining on the dorsal surface.
