Odell (anthropology, University of Tulsa) reviews the history of stone tool research, then details the procurement of lithic artifacts and discusses tool manufacture, assemblage variability, tool function, and inferences that can be made about prehistoric life. Material is organized on the basis of research questions rather than general topics. The book will be useful for academic archaeologists, cultural resource and heritage management archaeologists, government heritage agencies, and advanced undergraduate and graduate students of archaeology focused on the prehistoric period.
