Summary

Testing and data recovery at the Hunters Home site (11Wi398) in Naperville, Will County, Illinois, recovered nearly 60 formal end scrapers. Microwear analysis determined that more than 80% of them exhibited traces of use-wear, and, of those, nearly 90% showed evidence of hide working. Spatial relationships between hide scrapers, burnishing stones, ochre crayons, and refitted fire-cracked rocks were examined to define discrete, hearth-centered, hide working activity areas within the site.
