Preliminary Research on the Bone, Antler, and Tooth Artifacts from Haminmangha Site, Inner Mongolia
The Haminmangha Neolithic site is located at Horqin Left Wulat Middle Banner, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region and dates back to 5500-5000 BP according to radiocarbon dating results. More than 100 bone, antler and tooth artifacts were unearthed from Haminmangha. These artifacts include stone knives with bone handles, bone darts, arrowheads, needle cylinders, needles, daggers, awls, and hairpins, horn, antler awls and borers, tooth ornaments and other bone and antler materials. According to the analysis of these artifacts, we can deduce the retouching technology and manufacturing process for them as well as the characteristics of the artifacts which deepens our understanding of the production and living conditions of humans at the Haminmangha site.
