These eight scrapers were recovered from an archeological site in Gove County and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1980 and 1986. The scrapers ARE made of a variety of cherts including Smoky Hill silicified chalk from western Kansas, Alibates agatized dolomite from the Canadian River valley in Texas, and quartzite. The scrapers were used to scrape hides and may have been hafted onto handles. They would have required periodic resharpening. The site, situated on the bank of a creek, was occupied periodically for over 4,000 years.
