Abstract

This paper attempts to show that some late Larnian material predates the Neolithic period. The main reason why few sites using the Later Larnian techniques of blade production have been found is geological, i.e. the latest sites are always the easiest to find. Some consideration is also given to the problems of survival of Late Larnian material after contact with the Neolithic way of life. Due to the lack of distinctive implement types on many of the late sites, there are problems in finding definitive evidence of a long survival of the Larnian's traditional methods of blade production.
