Abstract

J. Whittaker: [Full of useful information on lithics and related topics much beyond the focus on Middle Potomac, but rather incoherently organized and written, and he’s too fond of creating bad new jargon.] Lots of illustrations of varying quality. Major sections on chronology, lithic technology, point typology, flake tools, caches, miscellaneous implements, and experimental archaeology.
[Small section on atlatls, not well defined, not very useful information. Illustrates atlatl hook of basalt from VA, no provenience given. Mentions “Hardaway site produced an atlatl made from antler” but no citation. How the heck does a “Functional Angle of 45-180 degrees” apply to atlatls?] Bannerstone section summarizes Hranicky 2003.
