Flake which may have been used as a knife or scraper. Flaking scars on one side. Brown and black chipped piece of stone. This flake may simply have been the by product created in the process of making another stone tool or it may have been used as a cutting tool. Its edges do not appear to have been shaped through retouching but there are chips along both of the sharp edges which might have been created from use. This type of tool has definate similarities to examples identified as of the Paleolithic period although their production is linked to the flaked stone tool technology which may have continued even into the Yayoi period.
