Stemmed Scraper
Description: This light gray and brownish yellow flint scraper was made from a stemmed point. The blade was originally triangular, but was converted to a scraper when the tip broke. The stem is broad with parallel sides and a square base. There is some evidence of grinding on the base. This piece was from Paleo-Indian Culture. Paleo-Indians occupied Ohio between 15,000 and 9,000 years ago. In the western plains of North America, Paleo-Indians hunted mammoths and other game; because they moved in herds, caribou may have been a favored prey. View on Ohio Memory.
