Functional analysis of late Holocene flaked and pebble stone artefacts from Vanuatu, Southwest Pacific
Functional studies were undertaken on simple, un-retouched flaked and pebble artefacts made from a variety of lithic raw materials, recovered from late Holocene (Lapita) sites in Vanuatu. Use-wear and residue analysis of macroscopic and microscopic evidence identified a wide range of craft, subsistence and social activities. These include cutting, pounding and grinding of non-woody plants; graving, drilling, scraping and sawing of soft wood; drilling shell and cutting and piercing soft elastic...[Show more]
