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.

Date: 1000-1500 CE
