LITHIC INDUSTRY AT DOVER, TENNESSEE, By R. M. GRAMLY Mississippian Period flintknappers lived on, and worked the material from the massive chert deposits near Dover, Tennessee, manufacturing a variety of flint tools and ceremonial objects for a broad market that spread out to Cahokia, Etowah, and Spiro. Excavations of houses and workshops revealed some interesting insights into the world of the ancient commercial flintworker. Lavishly illustrated by the late Val Waldorf with fine pen and ink drawings of numerous chipped stone objects as well as pottery, and four antler billets that had somehow survived! Off-and-on for four years Val worked in the drawings as the artifacts came to light, and the book was finally published in 1992. This was her first collaboration with Mike Gramly that led to her art being featured in many more of his monographs. With the ASAA website now off line I was able to acquire a limited quantity of these books in order to continue their sale on my site. Since some of the artifacts and information are featured in both books this monograph would make for a wonderful companion to the fourth volume in my Master Knapper’s Guide Series!  8 ½ x 11, 138 pages, soft bound with reinforced stapled spine for durability, price per copy is $20
