    This combination graver and side-scraper was found during the excavation of the Phil Stratton site in 2005. The bulb of percussion, where the blade was struck from the core, is still evident on the end even though it has been partially trimmed away by pressure flaking. This graver / side-scraper is made of St. Genevieve chert and it measures 2 1/4 inches (5.7 cm) long. 

By Michael Richard Gramly

    This finely crafted combination side-scraper and graver, made of St. Genevieve chert, was excavated from the Phil Stratton site in Logan County, southwestern Kentucky (Gramly 2005). The Phil Stratton site is a closed or single-component encampment of the Cumberland archaeological culture. Completed fluted projectile points, point preforms, a variety of scrapers and utilized flakes most made on prismatic blades are among the 200 flaked tools recovered to date (7-22-05).
