These four scrapers were collected from the Wullschleger site in Marshall County. They are just a few of the many artifacts donated by Otto Wullschleger to the Kansas Historical Society in 1960 and 1961. The village site was occupied periodically during the Early, Middle, and Late Ceramic Periods. The pinkish color of one of the scrapers is the result of the flintknapper heat treating the material to improve the chert's knapping qualities. They were likely hafted on a handle and used to scrape hides.

Date: 1 CE-1800
