Abstract

The research comprises of a detailed macroscopic analysis of a predominantly chert assemblage from the Mesolithic upland scatter site at Climpy, near Forth, Lanarkshire. This has involved the creation of databases using Access™. Firstly, the assemblage has been analysed to show the character of the assemblage. Secondly, a detailed technological and attribute analysis is undertaken of those pieces which have not been modified by retouch or edge damage, i.e. those artefacts that do not have any attributes save for the primary technological reduction process. Thirdly, a detailed analysis of the secondary technologies adopted to determine the method of retouch. The focus is primarily to offer an insight into the character of settlement, industry and the function and use of an upland site during the Mesolithic in Lanarkshire.
