These five scrapers were recovered from the Infinity site in Montgomery County by Kansas Historical Society archeologists. The scrapers would have likely been hafted on a handle and used to scrape hides. The scrapers would have required periodic resharpening. All of made of Permian chert, three of which (top row) have been heat-treated to improve the knapping qualities of the chert. The Infinity site is a multicomponent village site with five house structures, a midden and many other features. It was occupied from the late Archaic period through the Middle Ceramic period.
