Description: A dark grey flint sub-oval ‘thumb-nail’ scraper, retouched around the entire margin and with one small edge chip, but a fine example of the type. The implement attached by cord to an annotated card. The card foxed with some creases, otherwise condition good. Found near Leith Hill, near Dorking, Surrey, in 1930.
Size: Scraper 18 x 22 mm/0.7 x 0.9 in. in length, annotated card, 37 x 75 mm/1.4 x 2.9 ins.
Date: c. 3rd Millennium B.C.
A nice example of the careful recording of even the humblest artefacts by early 20th Century collectors.
