Abstract

This work regards the techno-functional study of the lithic industry from layer 23 of Grotta Paglicci (Rignano Garganico, Foggia) dated 28.100 ± 400 BP uncal. and attributed to the Early Gravettian. The châine opératoire, finalized at blade-bladelet production, shows a ramification at the point of bladelet production, maybe to increase its productivity. Both soft stone and organic hammers were used for the detachments by the direct percussion. Among the lithic implements different techno-functional categories have been identified. The blade assemblage, characterized by a high morpho-technical and dimensional variability, comprises the tool-set referable to “domestic” activities, as shown by the use-wear referable to cutting, scraping and grooving. An interesting aspect is the functional role of many fractures. The bladelets were transformed into backed tools, mainly backed points, most probably hafted on throwing weapons both in apical and lateral position.
