Experimentally obtained examples of projectile damage: cases of similar fracture types on microlithic tips and side elements
Експерименти с метателно оръжие (стрели): фрагментиране на кремъчните върхове и латерални елементи
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.
