These nine scrapers were all recovered from the Lewis site in Pawnee County, a Middle Ceramic village site occupied by Pratt Complex groups. The scrapers are all made of a chert called Smoky Hill Silicified Chalk. They would have likely been hafted on a handle and used to scrape hides. The tools would have required periodic resharpening.

Date: 1100 CE-1500 CE
