Only One Available: This is a very nice Archaic Native American Circular Scraper. This is a very nice artifact with no breaks or chips. This dates up to 10,000 years old!

Scrapers were often used to soften hides or to clean meat off of the hides, in addition to being used for wood work. As the term scraper suggests, this tool was scraped at the hide or wood in order to reach the end goal. Scrapers were also made in order to skin animals.

Scrapers are typically formed by chipping the end of a flake of stone in order to create one sharp side and to keep the rest of the sides dull to facilitate grasping it. Most scrapers are either circle or blade-like in shape. The working edges of scrapers tend to be convex, and many have trimmed and dulled lateral edges to facilitate hafting.

There is a minor break as seen in the photos. This is still a very attractive artifact. A great addition to any artifact collection. Measures 2" long.
