    A tool that was made from a flake struck from a core, or source, of useable material. Instead of manipulating source stone for a tool, you use pieces removed from original cobble, rock, stone to make a tool. My amateur take on it....

    I like 'em. Most of my artifact friends are head hunters and call them junk.

    basically it can be any flake that shows evidence of alteration for likely use by NA's. Sometimes we don't know what the use was though.

    A native needed a quick knife, he could/would simply use the sharp edge of a flake, when it became dull he'd touch up the edge leaving evidence. And when done, simply toss it.
