  • Searching for lithics

    Under “Lithic Material Guides (by state or properties)” This is a sticky thread.

    Can anyone give me a useful link? I am interested to learn lithics but am not having much luck in my searches. Google doesn’t work well because I am getting lots of pictures that do not match the lithic.

    Thanks for the heads up Ron. Will see if or how these have changed.

      Good sites seem to be in very short supply!
      The Glenn Black Laboratory resources at Indiana University all now seem to be unavailable. I posted a question on the Laboratory's Facebook page a few minutes ago, asking if the links are out of date or simply that the database is no longer up and running. I'll post the answer here if they reply and update the Information Centre accordingly. I noted that even the link to their site given on the Facebook page returns a "restricted access" message.
      If anyone has any good links to comprehensive information by region, state or type then please post them here and I'll build them into the Information Centre. I have one link relating to Virginia lithics which I will add:

        It's a shame. The Glenn A. Black laboratory at I.U. houses one of the most extensive collections and information on Midwest artifacts in the country. Made attempts to contact the powers that be again tonight and doubt there will be response. I have sent numerous requests for info with no response over the last two years. You can go to the lab on campus and visit, but nothing works via the web pages.
        It is hard to find decent lithic info on the web Ron, like you said.

          Ron I like this resource myself  State of Iowa but they have a huge collection of samples from other states In my opinion it is not easy to navigate but not impossible either.   http://archaeology.uiowa.edu/chert-drawers

                  But it does no good, that page won't link to anything else.

                  Yep… none of the onward links from here are working (they all give “not found” or “restricted access” messages):
                  http://gbl.indiana.edu/collec/midwest-lith/

                  Links from here work:
                  http://archaeology.uiowa.edu/chert-drawers

                  Although this is referred to as the “Chert Drawers” section, it provides pictures of a wide variety of lithic material specimens other than cherts. The repository is divided into:

                  In-State Lithic Drawers (ie specimens from Iowa)

                  In-State Micro Lithic Drawers (Iowa specimens shown in detailed close-up)

                  Out-State Lithic Drawers (ie specimens from states other than Iowa)

                  Within each of the above sections, the specimens are grouped by geological time period. Generally, it is difficult to navigate around the collection and impossible to have “see-at-a-glance” view of an entire group… but there are lots of great pictures to assist in identification and origin.

                  There was no reply to my question on the Laboratory’s Facebook page, so I will update the Information Centre accordingly and remove the dead links.

                    Not a lot of info about lithic materials on the web, well with good pictures anyways, which is helpful.  Most sites just hit the highspots.  I've shared this link before I think....

                          I do not know why they changed this it used to be you would click on a drawer and it would open a bunch of thumbnails so you could t least scroll a little and look for color match. Now it seems they have skipped a step and it makes it a little more painstaking. Great sample pictures in there though as Roger pointed out.

                          Sorry Ron I got this one yesterday but cannot find my way back to the origin website. I cannot email it to you as it is 29 megs
                          I wonder if this would go into a cloud?  Then you could pick it up there. I used my cloud only once or twice. Not even real sure hw they work LOL

                          OK found the mother page here but cannot find the PDF within it.  Dang it has so many fine color images of Utah Lithics too. https://research.wsulibs.wsu.edu/xml...wse?type=title
