Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

Dark grey, appearing brown under transmitted light, flint with cortex; notched scraper. Flake with a broad flake trimmed from its dorsal side by hard hammer strike, and with a bulb at the narrower end of a markedly concave ventral surface. Very short abrupt retouch executed from the ventral aspect follows part of one edge to form a notch. The appearance of similar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect is misleading, and arises from adventitious edge-on impacts. The finder kindly cites PUBLIC-7040A5 as a parallel. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC
