Morphological and reduction continuums in Eastern Australia: measurement and implications at capertee 3
At one of the classic Australian sites we document how retouched flakes (often called ‘scrapers’) display a morphological continuum, and that this continuum is largely explained as a reflection of different levels of reduction. The measurement and interpretation of retouching patterns, and their explanation in terms of the extent of reduction, is discussed. We argue that the demonstration of continuous variation at Capertee 3 has implications for artefact analysis elsewhere in Australia....[Show more]
