Neolithic sites just east of Shisur (Phase II) contain tabular flint scrapers. Struck from a large flake, the upper surface still retains the original cortex. Secondary retouch can be seen all along the edge. The struck flake from the middle of the scraper is most distinctive. Such scrapers are known from the western Levant and Sinai, dating to the EB period, fourth-third millennia B.C.
