Wieliszew, Legionowo district, sites III, VIb; trenches XVI, XVIIc: some reflections on flint manufacturing in final Mesolithic (Kokry industry)
Languages of publication
Authors present an analysis of two Final Mesolithic flint assemblages from sites Wieliszew III and VIb in Central Poland. The sites comprised two artifact concentrations buried in trenches XVI and XVIIc. A number of quantitative and qualitative attributes characterize the two assemblages, namely: the dominance of scrapers over endscrapers, the occurrence of bipolar technique of flaking, the microlithic character of tools and the governance of trapezoidal pieces among the insets. These are the traits that have suggested a new discrete stylistic entity, which, subsequently, has been termed the Kokry industry. One hundred thirty and six flint artifacts from trench XVIIc show use-wear traces indicating heavy use. Hide processing wear has been the most frequent. In addition, the tools were involved in wood and bone processing, whereas the microliths were used as insets being elements of armament.
