    Ok. So I am a girl. Not a girl - because there are clearly women here that make me look like whatever those incredible collections make me feel like.

    Remember that kid in school that turned into an environmental scientist but really thought he should be on the football team?

    That is me right now. Man, am I in the right place and talking to some serious and wonderful collectors. I appreciate just being shown the stuff you have. I have to spend more time in the mud before I die

    Hey Bill. Those red scrapers/blades you have are just about identical to the one I use for my avatar. Found on the Hillsborough river in a place called Lettuce Lake.

    "Thumbscraper" sounds painful! Here is a thumbnail scraper from Florida. The "thumbnail" is the large, flat area on the convex side of the scraper. This flat area is the untouched remainder of the exterior of the thick flake after the edges have been sharpened by pressure flaking.

    Purdy includes these uniface tool among the larger category of "blunt-nose end scrapers." These tools, she suggests, are part of the Late Paleoindian toolkit, and they have been reported from the Late Paleolithic of Europe. The book example comes from a Florida site with mixed Archaic and Late Paleo lithics. Purdy does not provide the dimensions of her figured example, but I have offered the measurements of one example in my collection.

    Sometimes I go about pitying myself, and all the time
    I am being carried on great winds across the sky.

ID:	671268 which one is from your collection? Barbara A. Purdy has done some real good work. Her book on wet site Archaeology is very informative.
