Mesolithic flint tools;Mesolithic people used a wide variety of scrapers - end scrapers, side scrapers and combined scrapers, probably to turn raw hides into clothing, tents and other utilities.  Some were large and heavy - up to 10 centimetres and possibly hafted, while others were so small and delicate they could scarcely be held by adult fingers. Some were flakes that were retouched, others were made on blades (flakes more than twice as long as they are wide).
