Prehistoric Lithic Industry at Dover, Tennessee


Prehistoric Lithic Industry at Dover, Tennessee, by R.M. Gramly. The flintknappers at Dover, Tennessee, manufactured a variety of flint tools for a broad market. These items appear as far away as Cahokia Mounds in East St. Louis, Illinois and Spiro Mound in Oklahoma. Excavations at this site revealed some insights into the world of the commercial flintknapper over 1000 years ago. This book is lavishly illustrated with 147 incredibly detailed pen and ink drawings by the late Valerie Waldorf, including stone, bone, and pottery artifacts. [For example, see photo of the back cover.] This was the first in a series of books Val illustrated for Dr. Gramly. Also, D.C. Waldorf was heavily involved in the scoping out of the chert sources and the experiments in manufacturing the items produced by the ancient Dover knappers. 8 1/2 by 11 inches, 138 pages. Price, $12 each. Limited copies available at this low price!
