Unique ID: SUR-77C0DB

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

A rounded flint scraper made from a grey to light brown flint. The dorsal side has flake removal scars, the other side has a clear bulb of percussion suggesting removal with a hard hammer. The striking platform retains its cortex suggesting direct removal from a nodule with little in the way of preparation. There is semi-abrupt retouch along both sides and on the distal end. Mesolithic to Bronze Age.
