Reintroducing Butt Scrapers (Racloirs Sur Talon): Another Look at a Non-Formal Tool Type

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Butt Scrapers from a Pottery Neolithic 5th millennium B.C. (uncalibrated C-14) site in Israel are presented. Their definition as a tool type following Crowfoot-Payne (1983) and Debenath and Dibble (1994) is refined. Definitions of Middle and Upper Paleolithic scrapers by Bordes are used to discuss typological technological and functional aspects of this type. Technological characteristics seem to be central in defining this morphologically varied type.
