A Formal Model of End Scraper Performance on Dry Bison Hide (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Spencer Pelton. Joshua Boyd.

End scrapers are a widely recognized tool in the archaeological record, but their performance characteristics are poorly understood. We use experimental results and adapt marginal value theorem (MVT) for use in lithic studies to devise a formal model of end scraper performance that predicts the optimal time at which one should resharpen their end scraper under several scenarios of raw material abundance. Our study is the first to apply MVT to end scarper performance through an actualistic study,...
