SCRAPER (TOOL)

Unique ID: WILT-1A405D

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

A Late Neolithic to Bronze Age flint scraper, probably dating to c. 3,300-800 BC. A tertiary flake of mottled beige-grey flint, with one surviving striking platform and relatively pronounced bulb of percussion, without a bulbar scar. The dorsal face exhibits a series of sub-parallel removals, all struck from the same platform as the overall flake removal, with pronounced conchoidal ripple marks. The distal end of the dorsdal face exhibits short, abrupt, stepped retouch.

Length 41.1mm; width 44.7mm; thickness 11.1mm; weight 23.83g.

It is difficult to date a single undignostic flint tool with certainty, however the relatively crude knapping would suggest a Later Neolithic to Bronze Age date.
