Abstract


Gravers were common during the Upper Paleolithic and continued to be used in degenerate form in the Mesolithic. The essential characteristic of the graver is the chisel-edge formed by the meeting of two bezels, single or multi-faceted, at the extremity of a flake or blade, or sometimes of a core lending itself to suitable treatment. Most Scottish examples have been found in Tweedside.
