Speidel, Paul

An analysis of the lithic artifacts recovered during the 1993 excavations is presented. Lithic tools and debitage are described in detail, with tool types listed and discussed individually. Lithic material types are listed, and the source areas are mapped. Unmodified lithic objects (e.g. non-cultural pebbles) and fire-cracked rock are itemized. A discussion of the lithic recoveries examine artifact clusters and their implications. Data are presented in tables and figures, and photographs of the lithic artifacts are included.
