Vanishing River Volume 3: Material Culture and Physical Anthropology: Part 2: Chapter 7
Part of the Lower Verde Archaeological project
This chapter presents the analysis of flaked and ground stone artifacts from LVAP. It is divided into three sections. First, the analytic methods are presented. Second, an overview of lithic sourcing, technology, and typology is presented. Third, descriptions of the lithic collections from the project sites are provided. The chapter closes with discussion and conclusions. Detailed analytic methods are provided in appendixes. Specific attributes and definitions are provided in Appendix M. Appendix M also discusses methods used for the specialized residue analyses (immunological, phytolith, and protein residues) and geological sourcing of lithic artifacts that were conducted by specialists as part of the lithic studies.
The LVAP lithic artifact research differs from many recent lithic analyses in a fundamental way: we have not separated the analyses of flaked and ground stone artifacts. This was a deliberate decision, one designed to increase communication among analysts and provide a better understanding of the prehistoric record. It is our position that lithic materials represent a resource that was exploited by prehistoric peoples within their own cultural system. The ways in which those materials were exploited at different times provides clues to understanding other aspects of that cultural system.
