Product Overview

Despite their ubiquitous presence among prehistoric remains in Greece, ground stone tools have yet to attract the same kind of attention as have othercategories of archaeological material, such as pottery or lithics. Flexible Stonesprovides a detailed analysis of the material discovered during the excavations atFranchthi Cave, Peloponnese, Greece. Approximately 500 tools, the raw material usedfor their manufacture, as well as the byproducts of such manufacture were found.Most of this collection comes from the Neolithic component of the site -- includinga small number of Palaeolithic and Mesolithic cases -- with a large number of thestudied tools indicating multiple uses. Anna Stroulia sees the multifunctionalcharacter of these tools as a conscious choice that reflects a flexible attitude oftool makers and users toward tools and raw materials. A CD-Rom with 209 additionalplates is included.
