Microwear Analysis of the Lithic Assemblage at the Rosenberger Site

  • Author(s): Madsen, Carl D
  • et al.
Abstract

For several decades, microwear analysis has been applied to a variety of flaked stone artifacts. These studies have attempted to ascertain the function of specific flaked stone tools. This study applies microwear analysis to flaked stone artifacts recovered from a burial site in western Idaho. The purpose of this study is to determine if the artifacts recovered from the Rosenberger site (10-PE-29) were burial specific; that is, produced and used for ceremonial purposes only.
