These two scrapers were recovered from the surface of a camp workshop site (14TO313) near the Saline River in Trego County during the 1997 Kansas Archeology Training Program. 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.

Date: 1000 CE-1800
