The disadvantage of using a pressure flaker over a percussor is that much less force can be applied. 1 Examples of detached pieces and objective pieces: (a) detached piece, flake from nodule; (b) objective piece, river nodule; (c) detached piece, ventral view; (d) detached piece, dorsal view; (e) objective piece, unidirectional core; (f) objective piece, multidirectional core; (g) detached piece, dorsal view; (h) detached piece, ventral view. FIGURE people can only generate by percussion flaking.

Bifaces come in numerous sizes and shapes and have hundreds of specialized names that depend upon their shape and where they were found (Carlson 1996; Goodyear 1974:19–43; Hester 1993; Hiraguchi 1992; Mellars 1996:124–32; Sassaman 1994). All bifaces have two sides that meet to form a single edge that circumscribes the entire artifact. 8; Collins and Andrefsky 1995:11–15). 9). Some were used primarily as cores or as sources for usable flakes (Goodyear 1979; Kelly 1988). Bifacial cores themselves may have been used as chopping or cutting tools (Ahler 1971; Andrefsky 1997b, in press b; Lewenstein 1987; Odell 1981).

These and other factors create detached pieces that may look nothing like the three 29 30 LITHICS: MACROSCOPIC APPROACHES TO ANALYSIS ideal flake types. Much of the lithic analysis that follows explains how to obtain information from ideal flake types. However, the full morphological range of detached pieces produced during tool production and core reduction is also recognized, and techniques of lithic analysis are introduced for this debitage as well. STONE TOOL MORPHOLOGICAL DYNAMICS Typologies based upon morphology allow specimens to be ordered into groups at a single point in time.
