This is a neolithic, flint transverse arrowhead with scale flaking on the upper surface and the shallow inverse has been retouched. Transverse means that it was worked across the arrowhead, not along it. Abrasion is confined to the edges and the base and might suggest secondary use as a cutting implement. Its probably dated to the late Neolithic and associated with a type of pottery known as Grooved Ware.
