A group of six native American Paleolithic stone tools from the Suwanee River basin, northern Florida. Chert and flint, in excellent condition with patinas varying from matte ground patina to highly glossy river patina. Heights between 2 1/8" and 2 3/4". All legal finds, ex. Michael Cottingham collection. These are all flake tools with the exception of the second from the left, which is bifacially knapped. In general these are thick, the edges forming what approximates an abrupt scraper, and research on tools of a similar typology from this region and time period indicate that they were often used to pry open shellfish. Date to approx. 8000-5000 BCE.
