End and Side Scraper from 14WO306

End and Side Scraper from 14WO306
Date: 1000-1500 CE
The scraper shown here was recovered from an archeological site in Woodson County, thought by the archeologist who discovered it to represent a Pomona occupation. The scraper is made of Permian chert and had been heat-treated prior to its completion in order to make a better knappable chert. Scrapers may have been hafted onto a handle and used to scrape hides. They would have required periodic resharpening.


Scraper from 14TO309

Scraper from 14TO309
Date: 1500-1800 CE
This scraper came from the surface of a Late Ceramic period archeological site in Trego County. It was recovered during the 1997 Kansas Archeology Training Program field school and was knapped of a chert called Smoky Hill silicified chalk. It was likely hafted onto a handle and later used to scrape hides. It would have required periodic resharpening.


Scrapers from 14TO313

Scrapers from 14TO313
Date: 1000-1800 CE
These two scrapers were recovered from the surface of an archeological workshop site near the Saline River in Trego County during the 1997 Kansas Archeology Training Program field school. The scraper on the left is made of a chert called Smoky Hill silicified chalk, while the chert of the right scraper is unidentified. They would have likely been hafted on a handle and used to scrape hides. The tools would have required periodic resharpening.


Side Scrapers from the Wullschleger Site, 14MH301

Side Scrapers from the Wullschleger Site, 14MH301
Date: 1-1800 CE
These six side scrapers were recovered from the Wullschleger site in Marshall County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1960 and 1961. The side scrapers were all likely hafted on a handle and used to scrape hides. Four of the scrapers retain a weathered outer portion call cortex. The Wullschleger site is a multicomponent village that was occupied intermittently during the Early, Middle and Late Ceramic periods.


Side-Scrapers from the Wullschleger Site, 14MH301

Side-Scrapers from the Wullschleger Site, 14MH301
Date: 1-1800 CE
These four side-scrapers were recovered from the Wullschleger site, in Marshall County, and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1960 and 1961. They were all likely hafted onto a handle and used to scrape hides. Periodic resharpening would cause the scrapers to become shorter in length.
