    Core

    I have a question on cores.
    #1. What is the difference between a core or a spall?
    #2. Did they ever use cores for anything when they were done with them?
    #3. Why would these 2 be so small?
    #4. Seeing they are so small do you think they made and used the removed pieces for tools?
    The reason I ask is cause I am on a area that I have permission to hunt and am finding a lot of cores and the one on the right is so small.
    What could they of made to leave such a small core.
    Thanks for your thoughts on this, rock

    difference is that a spawl is what is taken from the outcropping spawled off parent stone. A core is the spawl reduced from running off flakes. As for the size they worked hard to get flint so i would say they utilized as much of it as possible.

    He said it.. a core is just a supply stone. I don't think what you have in your hand are cores. I would call that cobble. A spall is just a large flake.

    Here is one of my core choppers. You can see the use wear on the working edge as well.

    My small cobble has had flakes removed from all angles. Those look like broken pieces of rocks.
    Personal finds were on private property which I have permission to hunt.

    I'm not going there with you. You ask a question and receive an answer. If you don't like the answer just ignore it. Just asking the question shows that you don't have the experience to answer it. Call them whatever makes you happy.

    Because you apparently ask a question with a preconceived notion of what the answer is. and if responses don't coincide with that notion you argue with someone who took the time to try to help you. ....am I wrong about the fact that at the beginning of this post you made.. you didn't know the difference between a spall and a core? And already your going to tell me?
