Potentially stylistic differences between backed artefacts from two nearby sites occupied ˜60,000 years before present in South Africa
Archaeologists are commonly interested in material signatures that can be used to identify past population groups. In the Palaeolithic such population groups are often identified at large spatial scales, yet the material expressions of smaller groups comparable to those documented ethnographically have proved more difficult to isolate.
