Abstract

Lithic artefacts from the Neolithic in Bohemia. Differences in blade core reduction strategies due to different forms of raw material use

The article consists of two parts. First part sums up current knowledge of lithic artefacts in the Neolithic period in Bohemia. Second part draws on the fact that each of three dominant knappable raw materials that prevail in lithic assemblages during the Neolithic period in Bohemia occurs at its source in different natural shape (i.e. flat slabs of Bavarian layered silicite “plattensilex” type Abensberg-Arnhofen, nodules of silicite of erratic origin from Pleistocene glacial sediments, blocks of fine-grained Skršín quartzite). The aim of the article is to record possible differences in blade core reduction strategies that are determined by the shape of particular natural raw material. Accompanying photographs taken during replication illustrate main steps in reduction.
