Flaked Stone Technologies Workshop
October 14, 2019 @ 8:00 am - October 18, 2019 @ 5:00 pm
Instructor: John L. Fagan, Terry L. Ozbun, Meghan Johnson
This five-day program emphasizes hands-on production and analysis of flaked stone tools and debitage. Participants become familiar with several tool technologies (including core, biface, bipolar, and blade technologies), and learn to recognize and identify the distinctive manufacturing products and by-products of each. This program enhances an archaeologist’s ability to meet the RPA code of conduct and its standards of research performance through acquiring additional expertise and methodologies to interpret the archaeological record and understand past cultures and behavioral patterns. These lithic technology analysis methods are commonly needed in archaeology due to the abundance of flaked stone lithic materials at pre-contact archaeological sites.
