Summary

Appendix 11 is an incomplete draft of the typology and description of flint and obsidian eccentrics and incised obsidians. Objects included here are either representational or symbolic, figural, and non-figural, and are organized in this typology in three categories: Eccentric Flints, Eccentric Obsidians, and Incised Obsidians. Many bibliographic entries do not appear in the References section of this Report. Moholy-Nagy has added the texts in brackets. Present-day usage has substituted the term “chert” for Coe’s “flint” and “prismatic blade” for A. V. Kidder’s “flake-blade.”
