FRACTOGRAPHY LESSONS FROM KNAPPING Are Tsirk F ractography
Consultant Upper Montclair, NJ, USA ABSTRACT Knapping entails the
production of fractures by flaking. The crack propagation is almost always
subcritical.* The great variety of fractures in knapping is not encountered in
laboratory research nor in industrial applications. Brief references are made to a
number of fracture markings and other fracture features observed, along with
suggested explanations for their ...

Limited knowledge of fracture mechanics Numerous knapping errors, including
stacked step fractures, hinge fractures, poor platform placement, and multiple
hammer strikes. Tool is usually unintentionally asymmetrical, in both plan and
cross section. Moderate knapping ability Some knapping errors, such as step
fractures or poor platform placement. Poorly sequenced flake removals. Errors
likely limited the recyclability or use life of the tool, but not its initial function. Some
tools in this ...

All fracture causes are examined, including those resulting from knapping,
retouch and transport. Intentional fractures are not included as these
systematically proved to show a clear bulb (Geerts 1999). Four fracture locations
are considered: proximal extremity, proximal (e.g., in the haft), medial (e.g., at the
haft limit), distal extremity (generally a partial fracture, i.e. intense scarring). For
each of these locations, it is examined whether hafting fractures have differing
attributes 39 Even ...

Flaking (Fracture or Failure Errors) - the following are common knapping
mistakes: 1) This variable is strongly correlated with Manufacturing Condition
above since most of the evidence for abandonment during manufacture derives
from the nature of fractures and failures (referred to as Breakage Patterns and
Knapping Errors in Collins, et al. 1979). 2) Hinge fracture exhibits a flake scar or
scars with abruptly upward curving termination (Johnson 1981). Step fractures, a
subset with ...

Many illustrations of knapping show angles of impact which any knapper knows
to be impossible (e.g. Bordaz 1970: Figures 4 and 8; Semenov 1964: Figure 4,
Number 2; Figure 5, Number 2; Figure 15, Number 4) or interpretations of the
formation of use wear on an edge in ways that contradict all of the physical laws
of the fracture of lithic materials. I don't know how many knappers share with me
the experience of having done an analysis of a lithic collection before learning to
knap ...

... the various procedures and strategies knappers employed to gain control over
the material being worked and determine their frequency in archaeological
assemblages. From this we may determine their significance in relation to other
features of the assemblage (such as the geographic location of the assemblage
relative to the occurrence of raw materials, the type and quality of raw materials,
etc.). By briefly reviewing the methods of stone fracture and its many intertwined
variables ...

Interpretation of Main Uses of Cobbles Based on the primary morphological and
weight groups and their wear traces or fractures, knapping activities can be
attributed to objects weighing less than 600 g. Those weighing between 40 and
195 g would rarely have been used for activities other than knapping (except nut-
cracking, maybe). The smallest objects, always on category-5 polyhedral forms
can be more precisely linked to retouch or perhaps more commonly to small core

Trapeze styles could also be influenced by the removal sequence: a marked
transversal curve of the knapping production surface results in greater elongation
of the blades as well as a higher relative thickness, the latter facilitating
microburin fractures. Knapping blades produced by small series of four to six
items, produce include a high ratio (1/2–1/3) of lateral blades versus central ones
. As the 'best' central products are selected for making microliths, the visibility of
pressure is less if ...

This makes the assessment of frequencies of impact fractures in the Maisières-
Canal collection difficult, but there are still some clues that suggest that a
projectile function for at least some of the tanged tools is possible. One line of
evidence is the percentage of the tanged tools (9%) with multiple impact fractures
, a percentage that is significantly higher than those produced in knapping
experiments (0.6%) but still lower than those from hunting experiments (30%) (
Pargeter 2013).
