Flint point with parallel, slightly convex edges tapering to a point. The base is slightly concave. Both faces are modified by invasive flat, sub-parallel retouch originating from the edges. Following retouch the piece has been thinned on both sides by the removal of a flake, also known as a 'flute' along the long axis, originating from the base.
