    • End scraper on flake. (18.8g). Complete. Mode of percussion = Hard hammer. Early to late Neolithic / early bronze age. made on distinctive mottled brownish-red flint flake. It has a well-made convex scraper at the distal end formed by abrupt retouch. It has some modification along both margins, although removals appear fresher and likely reflect post-depositional edge damage. It has unidirectional elongated convergent dorsal scars, possible indicating closer affinities with the earlier Neolithic. 48.1 x 32.8 x 14.7mm. (Dr JT Hogue, February 2020)
