    Quartzite hide scrapers? I think they are artifacts, how about you.

    I’d be surprised if they were.

    The pics don’t show anything that says it’s been worked.

    With all due respect Fred, NO! You need to "bone-up" on what actual artifacts look like--hide scrapers in particular!

    I would say natural as well
    I would rather see an authentic broken scraper posted than a G-10 Artifake!

    They may work just fine for that! They may have already!

    I may not know what the correct term is, but I can spot an artifact imo. Just seems no one else thinks so.

    Fred, what about these finds made you believe they were used in some way?
    Let us cross over the river, and rest under the shade of the trees.

    Fred,
    You should put all those great artifacts that you posted this year and put them together in a display frame. We’d love to see them all together.

    I'll try to get some pics up of little worked scrapers. Maybe that will help. The shape is not so much important as to the worked areas on it.

    The two areas where your hand would be while using this one are both smooth, unlike the rough surface of the rest of the rock for one thing. Almost like it spent a lot of time in someone’s hand, maybe.... scraping hides? Lol.

    The rough areas are where it naturally detached / cracked off of a vein (or from another source) more recently than the smooth areas Fred. The smooth areas are from natural weathering/erosion. I love your enthusiasm though!
