Sample text

Due to the fact that the LU-III and IV contained a markedly lower concentration of lithic artifacts in the sample than the overlying layers, I decided to include the materials retrieved from all the excavated units that corresponded to those two lithostratigraphic units (III and IV). This was also done for the primary purpose of obtaining a better panorama of the transitional period that I wish to explore in the present work. This same procedure was applied to formal artifacts that were not represented in enough quantities in the general sample, which included celts, beads, cemís, netweights, stone collar fragments, and other singular artifact types.

Other Ground Tools A stationary version of the channeled stone associated with the Elenan components of the site (LU-V) was recovered. I originally identi¤ed this tool type among the LH materials at La Hueca site. In PDI, the channeled stone was produced from a large fossiliferous limestone slab, presenting a linear incision with a round bottom that extended across one of its faces. This incision was around 10 mm in width, 6 mm in depth, and 42 cm long presenting similar dimensions to those obtained from the LH context of La Hueca site, which had an average width of 7 mm and depth of 5 mm (Rodríguez Ramos 2001a).

The ¤rst slice begins with the detachment of a primary ®ake from the ridge that marks the con®uence of two adjacent cobble faces (corner struck ®akes). In some cases in which there was a projecting thin section of the cobbles, it was removed by a single blow creating a rather massive, short, and thick primary ®ake with a convex platform. This initial ®ake extraction procedure creates the path for further ®ake removal across the face of the core. 5.
