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

Flint scraper. A small irregular flake with broad and narrow parallel flakes struck from its dorsal side, and with a bulbar ventral surface. Short abrupt retouch executed from the ventral aspect forms a curving lightly hollowed edge on one side, with similar treatment of a shorter adjacent side. A dense creamy patina suggest the object has subsequently endured prolonged exposure to a calcareous environment, while light orange spotting may hint at its subsequent incorporation into gravels. Suggested date: Neolithic, 4000-2350 BC
