END SCRAPERS FROM
Each of these three end scrapers were collected on widely separated sites around the world but they all represent the same tool form. They are all made of good quality fine grained chert and have a triangular or tear-drop shape. The widest ends are represented by steeply sharpened scraping edges. The example on the left was found on a Neolithic site in Saudi Arabia. The end scraper in the center was collected on the Bostrom Clovis site in southern Illinois. The example on the right was collected on a Swiss Lake site in Switzerland. The end scraper in the center is made of Kaolin chert and measures 1 3/4 inches (4.4 cm) long.
