SCRAPER (TOOL)

Unique ID: NLM-12D4B5

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

Grey flint with cortex debitage. A triangular chunk with broad and narrow flakes struck from its dorsal side and with an unevenly broken ventral surface. The marks of battering appear along two arises and at its narrower end. The flint was [?]subsequently lightly burnt, resulting in crazing which appears only on the struck surfaces. The flint retains a grey tint, in contrast to most of the heavily patinated assemblage it was reported with, which may hint at its subsequent inclusion in a sealed and non-calcareous context. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC
