LITHIC IMPLEMENT

Unique ID: YORYM-AFAEC5

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

A complete flint scraper of Mesolithic date (9500-4300 BC). The lithic is sub-rectangular in profile with an abruptly blunted proximal end. The dorsal surface is flaked at the distal and left hand edges, the remainder of the surface is covered in cortex, this scraper is therefore a primary flake. There is fine retouch to the distal, left and right hand sides. The ventral surface is smooth and contains one negative scar at the distal end and ripples of percussion running from the distal to the proximal end.

The flint is a light grey in colour with cream inclusions throughout. The cortex is dark cream in colour.
