In archeology, scrapers are unifacial tools that were used either for hideworking or woodworking purposes. Whereas this term is often used for any unifacially flaked stone tool that defies classification, most lithic analysts maintain that the only true scrapers are defined on the base of use-wear, and usually are those which were worked from the distal ends of blades-- i.e., "end scrapers" or grattoirs. Other scrapers include the so-called "side scrapers" or racloirs, which are stuck from the longest side of a flake, and notched scrapers, which have a cleft on either side which may have been used to attach them to something else.
