Stone implements--Illinois--De Kalb County

Abstract

A comparative analysis, based on technological and use-wear attributes associated with lithic implements from two separate northern Illinois localities, is described and discussed by the author. The focus of this study is on the functional aspects of the implements analyzed. These aspects tend to cross-cut both evolutionary culture periods and different ecosystems. This in turn suggests a relatively stable hunting and gathering adaptation in prehistoric northern Illinois.
