A nicely worked Mesolithic Portland Chert End Scraper tool , Portland Bill, Dorset (N23)
Our Price: £19.00


c.8000 - 6000 B.C. A nicely worked Mesolithic Portland Chert flaked End scraper tool excavated close to the famous Culverwell habitation site, Portland Bill, Isle of Portland, Dorset and from a Hampshire Geologists collection but originally hailing from an older collection amassed in the 1970's. End scrapers were the most common of prehistoric stone tools and would have been used for both cutting and scraping, but largely used for scraping the fat from animal hides for the making of clothes. Clearly worked with a pleasant overall pale blue / grey patination, an interesting example from a famous Mesolithic site, approx. 59mm long x 45mm wide x 21mm thick.
