Working at… "Oh, my! Scrapers and Choppers and Picks. Oh, my!"

I warned you that any subversions will take a back seat to moving World Headquarters 1500 km to the north at the end of June. Nevertheless, I can’t resist banging, once again, on the persistence of using functional labels for stone artifacts in the Early [or Lower] Palaeolithic. I’m working on it.

From phys.org come claims of function ascribed to “early” palaeolithic stone artifacts from the site of Guochachang II in the Danjiangkou Reservoir area.

“A Preliminary Report on the Excavation of the Guochachang II Paleolithic Site in the Danjiangkou Reservoir Region, Hubei Province,” by Hao Li, Chao-rong Li and Kathleen Kuman. Acta Anthropologica Sinica 32(2):144–155, 2013.
