Grattatoio e raschiatoi

Drawing by P. Gioia

From No. 1 to 6 Scapers
The scrapers are tools on flakes or blade (flakes longer than large) with one or more retouched edges, used to scratch and work skins and wood. The scrapers were used throughout the Prehistory but they are particularly characteristic of the Middle Paleolithic (200,000 - 35,000 years ago).

No. 5 End scraper
Tool characterized by a retouched edge, generally convex. The end scapers  could have a variety of uses as in scraping operations for the tanning of skins and in the processing of wood and bone. The end scraper is one of the most characteristic tools of the Upper Paleolithic (about 35,000 -10,000 years ago), but it was also found in much more ancient deposits.
