Condition Surfaces are worn, pitted, heavily scratched, pocked, and encrusted. One large, worn chip near the top of the "handle" reveals the porous interior of the antler. There is a large, shallow chipped and abraded area that is fresh and due to damage from modern tools used in excavation.
Fabric Description Antler
Munsell Color White 2.5Y/2/9 white, 10YR 2/1 black, 10YR 5/1 gray, 5YR 8/2 reddish yellow
Description Antler fragment preserves the skull attachment point; this surface is completely worn smooth and is heavily scratched with lines going in different directions, some crossing over each other. There is a small area of the original exterior of the antler just above the attachment point, and the rest is squared on three sides, more rounded on the fourth, possibly to serve as the handle for the hammer. The area below the chipped most worn of the handle surfaces is heavily scratched with both straight and curved lines.
