Unique ID: YORYM-9EC36D

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

A complete knapped lithic implement of Neolithic date, circa 4000 - 2300 BC. The implement is a scraper or knife formed from a secondary flake which is sub-rectangular in plan and triangular in section. The ventral surface displays ripples of percussion radiating from the bulb and striking platform. The dorsal surface retains approximately 30% cortex and displays one long previous flake removal and one shorter removal. Short, parallel, low angle retouch is present on the distal edge and right side suggesting the implement could have functioned as a scraper and/or knife.

The flint is a dark grey colour with lighter inclusions. The implement is 72.2mm long, 20.3mm wide, 7.1mm thick and weighs 11.9g
