The tool assemblage was dominated by scrapers and amongst these varieties, end scrapers were common. There were also awls, simple flake knives, retouched flakes, and a single leaf shaped arrowhead. A single core was recovered along with core rejuvenation flakes, flakes, blades etc. A total of 108 pieces were recovered from trench XXVIIc which covered 111m2. (1).
