This elk antler scraper handle was recovered from the Thompson site in Rice County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1963. The site, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was a Great Bend aspect village site occupied during the Late Ceramic Period. The elk antler would have been smoothed and shaped and had a hide scraper attached to the base of the tine. A series of incised lines were added to the underside.

Date: 1500 CE-1800
