The find, together with another scraped ochre stone, found nearby, also described in the paper, add to a growing understanding of the lives and culture of the hunter-gatherers who spent time on the shores of the ancient lake.
Archaeologists are trying to use this physical item to learn more about the culture of the hunter-gatherers of the area as there is no simple thing that explains all the detailed aspects of culture like writings that specifically explains the culture. What parts of the culture of that area can be seen by looking at an object that from what has been analyzed so far seems to be a writing implement. Maybe it shows a community that learned how to communicate among each other and maybe even different communities with either pictures or the objects themselves. The community has already been seen to have many items to show a culture and it can help to show more communication in a community.
