Uncovering a Small Segment of Stones

Fallen Stones:

"Patterson (1983) warns that subjective discussion should be avoided and importantly observes that even natural damage can be described in explicit terms. He places value on recognizing the patterns that characterise arte factuality including frequency:
   “Even if nature can produce lithic objects resembling simple man-made items, nature is not likely to do this often. Therefore, the frequency of occurrence at a given location of specimens with similar morphologies is important in demonstrating probable manufacturing patterns. Production of numerous lithic specimens with consistent morphology is certainly not a habit of nature.

"Cultural cobbles or a load of old cobblers? The detection of iconography and identification of artefactuality in lithics."
