Abstract:
The author explores a large body of data collected from Acheulian sites from India to Morocco and from South Africa to England to test the common premise that raw material properties and availability have a definitive impact on the morphology, size and production technology of Acheulian large cutting tools. Different raw material exploitation patterns as reflected in the bifacial tools in the various assemblages are described and analysed. The results indicate that in large flake based Acheulian assemblages, raw material constraints did not significantly affect either the blank production process or large cutting tool shape and size variability. The Acheulian large cutting toolmakers used the rock types available in the vicinity of their site in a sophisticated reduction sequence aimed at producing large cutting tools that are surprisingly similar regardless of the original shape, size and type of raw material from which they were produced.
