ABSTRACT
Lipped platforms have been associated with soft percussors in lithic analysis, but attempts to quantify what constitutes a lipped platform and how direct this relationship is have been ambiguous in the past. Using an experimental archaeological approach we define "lipped platform," present a systematic method to identifying lipped platform presence or absence, and quantify the relationship between lipped platforms and percussor hardness. Our findings indicate that a meaningful relationship between percussor hardness and platform lipping does exist and is discernable through the method outlined below.
