Tell Kosak Shamali Vol II : The Archaeological Investigations on the Upper Euphrates, Syria. Chalcolithic Technology and Subsistence Hardback
The four seasons of excavation at Tell Kosak Shamali yielded around 33,000 flaked stone artefacts from the Chalcolithic perid. These discoveries have allowed archaeologists their first oportunity to study lithic manufacturing activities and their development over this period in the Upper Euphrates valley, Syria.
The tools are described and documented within their chronological context, and their functional and morphological properties discussed.
There are also chapters devoted to bone objects and small finds, as well as some archaeobotanical and archaeozoological observations.
This book is a companion title to Volume I, which documents the Chalcolithic architecture and earlier prehistoric remains.
