Reference collection on flint knapping methods and techniques
As a result of two Seminars on Prehistoric Technology hold in the IMF-CSIC facilities in 2011 and 2017 we have compiled a lithic assemblage –around 40 cores- representative of several methods and techniques involved in the production of flint tools. The targeted methods concern many knapping and pressure methods devoted to the production of flakes and blades, as well as to the bifacial knapping. The applied techniques are based on many case studies of the prehistory around the world. The flintknappers were renowned specialists in lithic technology such as Eric Böeda, Laurence Bourguignon, Javier Baena, Antoni Palomo, Evgeny Y. Gyria and Frédéric Abbès.
