SCRAPER (TOOL)

Unique ID: NARC-1C594D

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

A complete flint scraper of Mesolithic date (9000 - 3450 BC). The lithic is sub-rectangular in plan and concavo-convex in section. The dorsal surface contains four predominant negative scars with corresponding arrises. The proximal end has been abruptly blunted and all other edges have semi abrupt retouch. The distal end has short parallel flaking. The ventral surface is slightly concave due to a deep negative scar at the proximal end. The lithic retains no cortex and is therefore a tertiary flake.

The flint is a cream in colour with orange/brown inclusions throughout.

Length: 16.16mm, Width: 14.52mm, Thickness: 4.22mm, Weight: 1.0g.
