Determination of the Size of a Percussion Biface from the Resulting Flakes
Author(s): Jeanne Binning
The mechanics of successful biface reduction dictates the size and morphology of the generated flakes. Given these constraints, the ensuing flakes can be used to determine the size of the original biface. Using experimental data, an algorithm was developed that allows the estimation of biface size from reduction debitage.
