Experimental investigation of flake productions and the identification of problem avoidance strategies, applied to scraper reduction at Mount Carmel

Macgregor, Oliver John


An investigation of problems which can occur during the process of detaching flakes from a parent piece of stone, and of the aspects of stone artefact morphology which increase or decrease the likelihood of problems occurring, is the focus of this thesis. Researchers with practical experience of knapping stone artefacts have cited various problems which can be experienced during the flake production process, but no program of experimentation has focused on evaluating the severity of different...[Show more]
