Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document Lancaster analyzed the ground stone artifacts, specifically the manos and metates. These tools are made out of four types of stone. The Manos can be divided into two types (Type I and II) and the metates can be divided into four types (through-trough, trough, slab, and basin). Some of the changes in these types through time correspond to how food was processed to increase the efficiency of the grinding process and to reduce the amount of time it took to process the corn. Lancaster looked at the striation patterns on the tools for clues as to how food was processed. He concluded that there was a surprising amount of wild plant foods processed on the metates.
