A complete flint semi-circular scraper of Neolithic date (4000-2350 BC). The lithic is sub-ovate in profile and concavo-convex in section. The dorsal surface is slightly concave due to a large negative scar with ripples of percussion emanating from the proximal end and short parallel flaking along all but the proximal edge which has been abruptly blunted. All edges have fine semi/abrupt retouch. The ventral surface is smooth and slightly convex due to a small bulb of percussion situated at the proximal end. The lithic retains no cortex and is therefore a tertiary flake. The flint…

A complete flint scraper of Neolithic date (4000-2350 BC). The object is sub-ovate in profile and bi-convex in section. The dorsal surface has retained cortex along the right hand edge and partial parallel flaking along the left hand edge. There is evidence of hinged flake removal at the proximal end. The distal, left and right hand edges contain semi-abrupt retouch. The ventral surface is slightly convex due to s small bulb of percussion situated at the proximal end, from which ripples of percussion emanate. The lithic retains some cortex, making it a secondary flake. The flint…

A complete flint retouched flake of Neolithic date (4000-2350 BC). The object is sub-ovate in profile and concavo-convex in section. The dorsal surface has three predominant negative scars and corresponding arrises. The distal, left and right hand edges contain rough semi-abrupt retouch. The ventral surface is slightly concave and has a small bulb of percussion situated at the distal end, from which ripples of percussion emanate. The lithic retains no cortex and is therefore a tertiary flake. The flint is light grey in colour with cream inclusions through out.

A complete flint retouched flake of Neolithic date (4000-2350 BC). The object is sub-spatulate in profile and bi-convex in section. The dorsal surface has partial scaled flaking at the distal end and retained cortex along the majoriay of its surface. The distal, left and right hand edges contain rough crossed-abrupt retouch. The ventral surface is slightly convex due to a small bulb of percussion situated at the distal end. The lithic retains some cortex and is therefore a secondary flake. The flint is dark grey in colour with cream inclusions through out. The cortex is light grey.

A complete flint retouched blade of Neolithic date (4000-2350 BC). The object is sub-rectangular in profile and concavo-convex in section. The dorsal surface has partial scaled flaking at the distal end and left hand edge. All edges contain rough semi-abrupt retouch. The ventral surface is slightly convex due to a small bulb of percussion situated at the distal end, the prominence of the bulb has been reduced by means of a single flake removal. The lithic retains no cortex and is therefore a tertiary flake. The flint is light brown in colour with cream inclusions through out.
