SCRAPER (TOOL)

Unique ID: NARC-29E5A0

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

A complete flint Scraper of Mesolithic date (9,000-3,450 BC). The object is sub-rectangular in plan and plano-convex in section. The dorsal surface contains one predominant negative scar and retains cortex across the mesal and right hand sides. The distal end tapers in slightly and is rounded while the proximal end has been blunted. The left and right hand edges have semi-abrupt retouch. The ventral surface is predominantly flat with a small bulb of percussion at the proximal end and ripples of percussion emanating from the bulb. The lithic retains cortex and is therefore a secondary flake.


The flint is cream in colour with light grey inclusions. The cortex is light brown in colour.

Length: 21.29mm, Width: 12.93mm, Thickness: 4.66mm, Weight: 1.4g.
