Description

Scraper, adze, or other type of tool. Flat with two sides which might serve as cutting edges. Unifacially chipped. Dark stone. Tool is similar in crudeness and unifacially chipped character to the unifacially chipped adzes of the Late Paleolithic and Jomon Periods. Like 2288, it has a ridge down one side. Their use is ambigious.
