Abstract

This preliminary study provides an overview of the Hathaway formation chert of the Champlain Valley, as well as two Native Americans quarries that are located within it. Using geochemical analysis the authors attempt to determine the most likely source ofdebitage recovered at a nearby lithic scatter. The resulting conclusion is examined from a geographic standpoint, and the authors propose the existence of a natural travel corridor connecting two high-resource-yield areas, the lithic scatter, and the known quarry district. This testable hypothesis helps to explain the existence, location, and cultural significance of the lithic scatters in the area, and provides direction for future research.
