The techno-functional analysis of the lithic assemblages from the Mousterian of Santa Croce has evidenced the complementarity of the two main knapping processes: the laminar débitage, which is characterized by a higher level of standardization, proves to have a more specialized function with respect to the discoid débitage, which is allotted instead to other more diversified activities. It is interesting to note that the opportunistic use of rejuvenation flakes and core residuals responds to the selection of standards, allowing us to assimilate this category to the objectives of discoid production.

Abstract

The techno-functional analysis of the lithic assemblages from the Mousterian of Santa Croce has evidenced the complementarity of the two main knapping processes: the laminar débitage, which is characterized by a higher level of standardization, proves to have a more specialized function with respect to the discoid débitage, which is allotted instead to other more diversified activities. It is interesting to note that the opportunistic use of rejuvenation flakes and core residuals responds to the selection of standards, allowing us to assimilate this category to the objectives of discoid production.
