SCRAPER (TOOL)

Unique ID: WILT-1884E6

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

A late Neolithic to early Bronze Age thumbnail scraper dating to c 2500-1500 BC. It is likely to be a tertiary flake as there does not appear to be any evidence of the original cortex, although the scraper is now completely recorticated and the patina is creamy white. It is broadly D-shaped. There is evidence of the bulb of percussion and concoidal rings on the ventral face. Around the curve of the dorsal face, there is short, sub-parallel, semi-abrupt retouch. The thumbnail scraper weighs 4.96g measuring 22.7mm in length, 28.32mm in width and 9.31mm in thickness.
