Abstract

This paper presents experimentally obtained examples of microlithic tools hafted as tips and as side elements of projectile weapons exhibiting similar types of macro-damage diagnostic of impact. Considering the wide range of designs represented by archaeological finds of projectiles fitted with microliths these examples emphasize the importance of a comprehensive approach to interpreting variability in microlithic assemblages with regard to the function of these projectile tools.
