The Packwood Lake Site: Lithic Technology and Site Function


The specific functional characterization of the sites used for this comparison was necessary in an attempt to eliminate the potential for intersite redundancy of representative on-site lithic reduction activities; therefore, for purposes of this research, sites that represent relative functional extremes and manifest specific lithic reduction activities associated with those functions were expected to be the most effective for comparative purposes with the Packwood Lake site assemblage (see Binford 1979: 255).
