The sources of raw materials tell us about procurement and exchange patterns. The nature of the materials and their finished products tell us about technology, skill, and shared learning.

Some of the artifacts can also be dated, providing us with more precise chronologies. Cultural artifacts are the aspects of material culture produced by a society, such as books, magazines, televisions shows, and movies.

Layer PBD, dated to ± ka, was selected for this analysis because it contains the richest lithic assemblage (c. artifacts > 2 cm) excavated from a total surface of 4 m 2 including abundant silcrete artifacts. In layer PBD silcrete accounts for 46% of the knapped component, the remaining raw material spectrum being composed of.
