A chipped stone artifact cache recently recovered from the Pahoehoe site (35DS268) in the Cascade Mountains of Oregon offers an opportunity to: (1) demonstrate the culturally determined reduction system employed to manufacture the lanceolate-shaped biface artifacts found in the cache; (2) compare this production technology and biface cache with current interpretations of lanceolate biface assemblages; and (3) discuss the possible function of this biface cache technology.
