Lithic Technology Part I: Percussion Biface Replication

Author(s): Errett Callahan

Year: 1973


This film on percussion bifacing was never completed (i.e. no sound). Though it roughly follows the ideas which later turned out to be THE BASICS, it is marred by poor visuals and amateurish camera work. I reedited it in 1981, into a 22 minute piece. It was put on videotape by the Schiele Museum in Gastonia, NC and they make it available for research purposes. It’s more a curio than an education. Of special interest, however, may be the fact that a number of the pieces shown in THE BASICS are knapped out before the camera here.
