This scraper came from the surface of a Late Ceramic period camp site in Trego County. It was recovered during the 1997 Kansas Archeology Training Program and was knapped of a chert called Smoky Hill Silicified Chalk or Smoky Hill Jasper. It was likely hafted onto a handle and used to scrape hides. It would have required periodic resharpening.

Date: 1500 CE-1800
