Dark grey flint with possibly re-formed cortex, possibly collected from the East Coast, scraper. A thumbnail scraper with short angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect following the curving edge, leaving a broad platform as its butt; and with a flat ventral surface. Light patches of misty patina across struck surfaces may suggest a subsequent limited period of exposure to a calcareous environment. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC.
