The source of the raw lithic material used in the manufacture of each artifact was

determined through inspection with a 18x hand lens and a binocular microscope. The

identifications were carried out under conditions of natural sunlight, unless otherwise

noted (see Appendix E). The basic rock type, any diagnostic micropaleontology within

the specimen, and comparison to existing lithic source rocks were the key parameters used

in making the lithic identifications. For the sake of maintaining the database in a

manageable size, hafting residue, which was evident on just a few of the artifacts, was

recorded under the database field, “micropaleontology.”
