Rate this:
Interior Plateau archaeologists have long recognised the potential for "key-shaped formed unifaces" to be formally recognised as reliable temporal horizon markers and to provide important information concerning specific task activities performed at prehistoric sites. The main objectives of this study are (1) to determine the geographical distribution of key-shaped unifaces in Northwest; (2) to disclose their approximate relative duration of use in areas where they have been identified; and (3) to determine their primary function on the Interior Plateau. This tool type has been documented in two major cultural and geographic areas in the Northwest: the Interior Plateau and some of its immediately adjacent regions; and throughout most of the Arctic.
