    Lithic Flakes and Blades After potsherds, lithic flakes and blades are the most abundant artifact class found in central Mexico. At Cholula, the great majority of lithics are made of obsidian, but whitish chert was also used. Flakes and blades were used for many tasks both within the household context and without. As a result, blades are found in virtually all contexts of a site.   The book will do for daggers what THE BASICS did for bifaces but will include the final products in great detail and the debitage story too. Keep an eye out for it. I am also in the final stages of writing a book on experimental archeology - everything I know on that too, another year project.

Larger bipointed bifaces were apparently used in butchering (Figure g). They are rarely found complete; usually, resharpening flakes and frag­ ments are recovered. Sometimes laterally beveled to the midpoint, these speci­ mens appear to have been dulled by use on one end and then reversed so the opposite end could be by:

Paleolithic remains are evident on the Duero and Pisuerga floodplains as well as on the banks of the Coa. The first fortified settlements in the coastal Duero area are from the 10th century BC (e.g. Citânia de ão). The Celts colonized the Meseta along the river network ∼ BC.

Combined with the contextual control afforded by the hand-excavation, these assemblages are tremendously important for understanding cultural patterns for the relevant time periods. In fact, although most Clovis bifaces were ground and/or beveled at some point, some waste flakes (debitage) show very little signs of platform preparation at all.

This is especially true in the beginning and ending stages of the bifaces when only light abrasion was performed. The pre-Clovis artifacts include more than 90 stone tools, such as bifaces and blades, and more thanflakes left over from the point-making process. (Photo courtesy Gault School of Archaeological Research) Indeed, an entire generation of anthropologists was taught that Clovis represented the continent’s first inhabitants.

They range in size from x (cm x cm) to x 4 (15cm x 10cm). #N# 1 COLOSSAL HEADS OF THE OLMEC, They are the most recognizable symbol of the Olmec civilization.

The colossal heads weigh from 6 to 40 tons and range in size from to feet high and were transported as far as 93 miles. They are believed to be individualized portraits of important rulers.

No metal tools were used to make them. Striking off flakes will produce bifaces or blades and pounding off granular particles can produce ground stone axes, celts. adzes, etc. Stone hammers were also used to construct spectacular sculptures, such as the statues on Easter island or the two figures from Mound C at Etowah.

They were also used in mining, for example as described by. chert tool types. Biface forms include oval bifaces, ground-bit celts, tranchet-bit bifaces, stemmed bifaces, lanceolate bifaces, and several other types. The three uniface types are discoid, triangular, and retouched flakes.

Plain and stemmed blades and macroblades were important elements in the tool inventories. Arrowpoints were made on flakes. Mar 3, - Stone ToolsChoppers are another easily made tool. A flint cobble would have flakes knocked off of one end to create a cutting edge.

The other end usually fits nicely in the hand. The cutting edge is often battered with crushed edges. Choppers were often quickly made and discarded after use. Choppers come in all shapes and sizes. The Stone Age was a broad prehistoric period during which stone was widely used to make implements with an edge, a point, or a percussion surface.

The period lasted from roughly million years. to the widespread use of western Asia this occurred by about BCE, when bronze becomes widespread and the term Bronze Age is used to describe the. ordered chapter on the Celts and various protohistoric groups completes Mr.
