Unique ID: NLM-2DADDD

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

Blue-grey flint scraper. A small thick flake with broad flakes struck from its dorsal side and with a bulbar ventral surface, forming a thumbnail scraper. Invasive angled scalar retouch executed from the dorsal aspect follows a curved edge. Misty patina over all struck surfaces suggests the object has subsequently endured a period of exposure to a calcareous environment. Suggested date: Early Bronze Age, 2350-1600 BC.
