Lithic technologies: if you hit it hard enough, something is bound to happen

Lithic technology involves hitting two stones, or hard objects together, and making tools. All stones are made up of minute crystals that can only be seen with a microscope, know as cryptocrystalline. This and conchoidal fractures make up good lithic technology. Conchoidal fractures are described as smooth, curved breaks from the base stone. Stones thatContinue reading “Lithic technologies: if you hit it hard enough, something is bound to happen”
