    Brokes and Scrapers

    Some of mine and River's recent finds...

    The bottom two rows are all mostly broke points and the top two are all scrapers ( a coupla cool ones).

    First up is River's Levanna ( true arrowhead point), we now have two, we both found one this year.

    Next is a pretty cool scraper I found, worked all the way around and a dark brown/purple color of chert I've never found anything this color before and it's got a pretty near organic shape and some very nice edge flaking.

    River found both of the bifurcate base brokes within minutes of one another

    Next up is One of my favorite scrapers, I found this on a new permission farm, which just happens to be within 1/4 mile of an known and excavated Paleo site.

    This scraper is double sided one side is worked along the edge and rounded front and then you flip it over and the opposite side is worked along one edge, a first for this kind of scraper for me.

    Last is a close up of a small flake knife and then finally a small white heat treated FR ( almost looks like Italian marble in RL) scraper with an double sided engraver on the point.


    Thanks for looking.

    Good job Buckeye and River.

    Seems as if you have the types and usages pegged pretty well. Mean looking burins mixed in there.

    From the looks of things, sooner or later there should be some dandy points coming from these areas.

    Good luck to you both next time into these spots. And River, go easy on your good ole dad.
    Maybe next time zig before you zag !

    Nice looking finds Bud. Really nice Levanna River. The scrapers have some cool flaking and spurs on them too. Glad to see you out pickin 'em up guys. I've got a hunt planned with Fldwkr this Sunday. We'll see how that turns out.
