Notes

Abstract:
The lithic technology study of layer Grey Sand at Sibudu reveals a large number of cores on flakes. Varying knapping methods of core reduction are presented here. Most of the core reduction techniques can be attributed to bladelet or small flake production. Also, we point to a new type of blade production, from prismatic cores, revealed by the study of debitage. These innovative knapping methods demonstrate the technological variability associated with Howiesons Poort lithic assemblages.
