Description

Tool. Semicircular stone. Bifacially retouched on two edges. Black obsidian. Although this tool is not as easily classified, it shows definate signs of reworking. It was carefully but crudely flaked along one edge. Because it has been accessioned with a group of tools which are assigned a date based on their form, this object can also be assigned a very broad tentative date range.
