The system of local supply of stone tools in Amzabegovo-Vršnik culture from Neolithic Macedonia
Keywords:Neolithic, Amzabegovo-Vršnik, Macedonia, raw materials, stone tools
Abstract"Although the number of Neolithic sites excavated in the territory of the Republic of Macedonia is considerable, the stone tools pertinent to these sites are still less known because they have never interested investigators. The results of surveys in the Kratovo-Zletovo area and analyses of stone assemblages from several archaeological sites of the Amzabegovo-Vršnik culture point to a system of local supply for stone tools used by the local communities. The aim of this paper is to draw attention to areas abundant in lithic raw materials and suggest that they were local sources for the production of stone artefacts in the Amzabegovo-Vršnik culture in Neolithic Macedonia.
