    • End scraper on a blade. 3.3g. Complete. Mode of percussion = Soft hammer>5mm. Mesolithic / early Neolithic. Made on a relatively small blade. It has a convex scraper edge at the distal end made with invasive retouch. It has parallel unidirectional dorsal scars, and is moderately small, which suggests affinities with Mesolithic flint work. It measures 38.9 x 19.7 x 5.4mm. (Dr JT Hogue, February 2020).
