ABSTRACT
The analysis of polished stone tools from the Late Neolithic site Hadzhidimitrovo shows a direct link between the raw material and technology used in its treatment. It is associated primarily with knowledge of how to facilitate the work process and how to increase stability of tools at work. An example for this is the orientation of the layers according to the shape of the tool or pecking of harder crystals, to facilitate the process of grinding.
