Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

Pale grey flint scraper. Hollow scraper. A flake of irregular form with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a concavity on its ventral surface. Short abrupt retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows or defines a concave curving edge along one long side of the flake, and also trims one short edge. The opposite long edge may also have a smaller notch formed by short abrupt retouch, though a more gentle curved edge adjacent to this is fortuitously formed. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC.
