Unique ID: NARC-1BF532

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

A complete flint Micro scraper of Mesolithic date (9000 - 3450 BC). The lithic is sub-rectangular in plan and plano-convex in section. The dorsal surface contains one predominant negative scar with corresponding arrises. There is cortex retained along the length of the left hand edge. The proximal and distal ends have been abruptly blunted and all other edges contain semi abrupt retouch. The ventral surface is predominantly flat with ripples of percussion emanating from the proximal end. The lithic retains some cortex and is therefore a secondary flake.

The flint is a mid grey in colour with cream inclusions throughout. The cortex is light brown in colour.

Length: 13.04mm, Width: 8.01mm, Thickness: 2.82mm, Weight: 0.3g.
