Object Type:


Large, round flint scraper found by Amanda Ransom at Keeper’s Cottage in Scarinish (NM 03893 44266) in 2018: ‘The flint was on the lawn of Keeper Cottage, in Scaranish. If you stand on the driveway facing the house, about 1m back from the sitting room window (the window on the right) and then walk straight onto the lawn at the right hand side of the house, it was about 1.5 meters out from the driveway, just along from where there is a wooden rail for hanging wetsuits, it was just poking up out of the mud. ‘
Dated by Professor Steve Mithen (from a photograph) as Late Neolithic or Bronze Age.
