[Dawn Nadine Cropper] -- "The Late Neolithic period ( calBP) represents a phase in Jordan's prehistory of which there is little archaeological certainty; this is particularly true when considering the dichotomy of.

      The life history of stone tools is intimately liked to tool production, use, and maintenance. These are important processes in the organization of lithic technology or the manner in which lithic technology is embedded within human organizational Price: $ The lithic assemblages from JQ include the use of El-Khiam and Helwan points, two classic types known from the Levantine Neolithic and never described before in the Arabian Peninsula. At least two of the JQ points were made on bladelets, further indicating a possible cultural affiliation with Levantine PPN technology.

In archaeology, lithic technology includes a broad array of techniques used to produce usable tools from various types of stone. The earliest stone tools were recovered from modern Ethiopia and were dated to between two-million and three-million years old.

The archaeological record of lithic technology is divided into three major time periods: the Paleolithic (Old Stone Age). Stone Tools in the Paleolithic and Neolithic Near East: A Guide surveys the lithic record for the East Mediterranean Levant (Lebanon, Syria.

It is intended both as an introduction to the lithic evidence for students and as a resource for researchers working with Paleolithic and Neolithic. These Neolithic sites were part of the Southern Neolithic Culture of India.

They are mainly concentrated in the Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka regions. The Neolithic people used stone axes fitted on a wooden handle. These polished stone axes are worshipped in many village temples of Tamil Nadu even today.

The existence of two lithic traditions in the central Syrian Desert re-opens the debate about the complexity, chronology, and origin of the Neolithic ‘‘conquest’’ of the semiarid steppes of central Syria.

Keywords: Bi-directional blade technology, flint workshop, reduction strategy, lithic traditions. In archaeology, lithic analysis is the analysis of stone tools and other chipped stone artifacts using basic scientific techniques.

At its most basic level, lithic analyses involve an analysis of the artifact’s morphology, the measurement of various physical attributes, and examining other visible features (such as noting the presence or absence of cortex, for example).

Written by a lithic analyst and professional flintknapper, this book systematically examines variation in technology, typology, and industries for the Lower, Middle, and Upper Paleolithic; the Epipaleolithic; and Neolithic periods in the Near East.

It is intended both as an introduction to this lithic. Human development is a long and steady process that began with stone tool making. Because of this skill, humans were able to adapt to climate changes, discover new territories, and invent new technologies.

"Pressure knapping" is the common term for one method of creating stone tools, where a larger device or blade specifically made for this purpose is use.
