A complete knapped lithic implement of Neolithic date, circa 4000 - 2300 BC. The implement is a scraper, designed to be held between the thumb and forefinger, formed from a secondary flake which is sub-ovate in plan and D-shaped in section. The ventral surface is smooth and displays a striking platform and prominent bulb of percussion. The dorsal surface retains 10% cortex with long, scaled, semi-abrupt retouch to create the scraping edge. The flint is dark grey colour, with pale mottling on the dorsal surface, and paler and darker mottling on the ventral. Length: 36.8mm, width: 35.1m…

A broken oblique arrowhead dating to the Late Neolithic (c. 2700 BC- c. 2350 BC). The lithic is sub-triangular and asymmetrical in plan and convex in section. The dorsal and ventral surfaces have been minimally worked with evidence of short, low angle retouch across both edges culminating in a narrowed tip on the distal end. The dorsal surface displays minor traces of a dark brown cortex. The left hand proximal end is significantly obliquely angled, however evidence for removals to create this cannot be seen suggesting that the knapper may have exploited the natural oblique shape of th…
