Record ID: DUR-C64BBA
Object type: SCRAPER (TOOL)
Broad period: NEOLITHIC
County: Gateshead
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete flint Scraper of Neolithic date (3450-2350 BC). The lithic is sub-triangular in plan and concavo-convex in section. The dorsal surface has three predominant negative scars and short stepped flaking and semi-abrupt retouch along both the left and right hand edges. The proximal and distal ends have been abruptly blunted. The ventral surface is slightly convex and has a small bulb of percussion situated at the distal end. The flake retains no cortex and is therefore a tertiary flake. The flint is grey in colour with cream inclusions throughout. Length: 15.45mm, Width: 18…
