    This thesis presents the results of these investigations and compares the lithic assemblages from Hayes Shelter with those recovered from seven additional sheltered sites and eight open sites in or near the Central Duck River Basin. By comparing the lithic assemblages from these 16 sites, information was gained on patterns of variability in the distribution of raw material types, tools, debitage, and flake : Joseph M. Herbert.

    In archaeology, lithic analysis is the analysis of stone tools and other chipped stone artifacts using basic scientific techniques. At its most basic level, lithic analyses involve an analysis of the artifact’s morphology, the measurement of various physical attributes, and examining other visible features (such as noting the presence or absence of cortex, for example). Large, fine-grained, high-quality pieces of tool-making material are rare in the region. Over prehistoric time, the best materials would have become harder and harder to find as succeeding generations returned over and over again to pick over the same raw material source areas (“lithic .

    Here, the authors report on intensive regional studies to investigate variability within this record, employing field survey, lithic analysis and experimental knapping. They examine Palaeolithic hominin behavioural change in the Wainganga Basin, central India, focusing on variability in spatial distribution, stratigraphy and lithic reduction. aboriginal raw material selection is approximately in proportion to availability. The paper by Amick also explicitly utilizes many of Binford's concepts about hunter-gatherer mobility patterns and technological organization.
