Unifacial and Bifacial Tools

Lab 3

Introduction to Archaeology

Stone tools may be worked on only one side (unifacially) or on both sides (bifacially)

These two unifacially flaked tools demonstrate the work on only one side of the tool.


A bifacially worked arrow head. When you examine the object in the lab note the flaking can be found on both sides of the tool.
