Abstract: Ackerman examines two distinct lithic technology complexes; the older southeast complex has frontally fluted, wedge-shaped microblade cores while the newer southwest complex (such as that found at Anangula Island) has conical blade/microblade cores. Ackerman has named this new core technology the Kagati Lake complex. Ackerman discusses the possible origins of both these lithic technologies.
