Bordes Biface Flake Models

  • Matthew D Hunstiger (Creator)



This dataset consists of flake models representing an experimental archaeological reduction. This Bordes Biface was knapped by the late French prehistorian and archaeologist François Bordes. It and its related flakes are housed at the University of Arizona's School of Anthropology. These models are of the flakes that were created, or knapped off, as Bordes made that biface. They were created for the purpose of studying scar directionality in archaeological chipped stone analysis, and formed part of the experimental side of a dissertation by Matthew D. Hunstiger.
