Flint scraper


SKU: PT0016. Category: . Tags: , .

Product Description

This is by far the most commonly found flint tool in the world due to the constant need throughout prehistory for the processing of animal skins for clothing etc. These simple tools date back to the Palaeolithic in their crudest form, but by the Neolithic and Bronze Age periods, they were possibly one of the finest crafted ‘disposable tools’. Often referred to as ‘thumbnail’ and ‘Button scrapers’ depending on size, these smaller flint scrapers are almost universally categorised as Neolithic or Bronze Age when found on excavations, but my attitude to this is why stop there? After all, how many Iron Age ‘iron’ hide scrapers have been found throughout the UK?

You can order this tool complete with a haft using wood, natural fibre and resin glue – please add “Tool haft” to your order.
