SCRAPER (TOOL)

Unique ID: NARC-1C63A9

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-triangular in plan and plano-convex in section. The dorsal surface contains five predominant negative scars with corresponding arrises. The proximal end has been abruptly blunted. All other edges have semi abrupt retouch. The distal end tapers to a point. The ventral surface is slightly convex due to a bulb of percussion situated at the proximal end. There is one shallow negative scar at the distal end. The lithic retains no cortex and is therefore a tertiary flake.

The flint is grey in colour with cream inclusions throughout.

Length: 16.04mm, Width: 12.14mm, Thickness: 3.68mm, Weight: 0.8g.
