These scrapers were recovered from the Larcom-Haggard site in Cowley County. Scrapers would have been hafted on a handle and used to scrape hides, requiring periodic resharpening. The scrapers are made of Reeds Spring chert from southwestern Missouri. This suggests either trade with or travel to the east by people living at the site. The Great Bend aspect village site was discovered in an old river meander with a modern gravel quarry greatly impacting the site. Kansas Historical Society archeologists and crew excavated there in 1996. The people that inhabited Great Bend aspect sites are ancestral to the Wichita and affiliated tribes.

Date: 1400-1750 CE
