Book & CD-ROM. This is a comprehensive investigation into the different ways in which archaeologists use flaked stone artefacts as a basis for reconstructing the distant human past. The authors not only describe the range of flaked stone artefact forms recovered from Australian archaeological sites, but also place Australian studies alongside the major international theories surrounding the description of stone artefacts. The book features: extensive analysis, clear and succinct definitions of technical terms and extensive use of illustrations; worked examples illustrating how collections of flakes, cores and rolls are analysed and interpreted; over 130 black-and-white labelled images of actual artefacts; an accompanying CD-ROM featuring over 450 colour images of artefacts; an up-to-date review of key theoretical approaches to flaked stone artefact analysis; an assessment of this historical development of Australian stone artefact studies; Australian perspective on the major international theoretical debates in the often controversial area of stone artefact studies.
