NOTICE TO ALL MEMBERS FROM THE ADMIN TEAM

The forum has been put into “read only” mode to temporarily stop any further posting. This is needed to ensure that all data can be migrated across to the new forum without interruption. It appears that some of you are still able to post (perhaps because you were logged in at the time the forum was switched to “read only” and have not subsequently logged out). That was not intended to be the case, so please STOP making any further posts.

We are still awaiting advice from the Developer team on when the new forum will go live. When it does, you will no longer see the orange banner message at the top of the page and you will need to log in again. You will also need to renew your password (but you should be able to re-use the same password that you currently have). Passwords cannot be transferred across to the new forum because they are encrypted for your security.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE

I found this short article on the Paleo End Scraper to be some interesting reading:
www.ele.net/pes/discript.htm
Ever since I read this article I have been watching for an end scraper with spurs on
the corners of the distal end. The one I bought was found in Lincoln Co. Kentucky.

This end scraper is a bit larger than most of the end scrapers I have. It measures
1 5/8 inch long, 1 9/16 inch across the spurs, and 7/16 inch thick in the center of
the distal end. The right side spur was broken but part of it remains.

Great piece! :ohmy: :woohoo: That article should be saved by everyone, about the PES. :kiss:
Very few I have found on Paleo sites have two graver/spurs. Usually the only have one.

Great example, Ron, and I agree with Tom. I went to the introductory page of the article by Tony Baker and posted it to the info center in "Other tools...". You can link to Baker's home page, which is also an excellent resource in general. Will have to find a place in the Info Center for his home page as well. Good stuff! Great link, Ron!

I took a close look at my thump scrapers and found 2 more.
The first one is from Central Indiana.
The second is Knife River Flint from North Dakota.

This Scraper was found in Lincoln County Kentucky. This is obviously a different style scraper.
Does the graver/spur on this scraper mean that it is Paleo? I'm not trying to confuse the issue
Just trying to learn something. I sure would appreciate some opinions on this one.
