Description

A uniface bimarginal scraper made from a pebble. The convex outer surface, though having the appearance of a Muller, bears no striations, and therefore is naturally formed. Knapped throughout periphery [Archaeological Collection Catalogue Card].

Research notes

The Foundation Donation comprises the items from L. P. Winterbotham's personal collection, which were donated to the University of Queensland in 1948 and form the basis of the Anthropology Museum.
