viii + 199pp, inc. figs, tables & plates, card, A4 ex lib, Christ Church archive, bookplate inside front cover A reminder for those who need it, that lithic studies are alive and well beyond the flint-rich lowland zone of England. Nine papers resulting from the 1988 Sheffield Lithics Conference illustrate some of the range of approaches to lithic analysis currently in use in a loosely defined northeast Midlands. Only occasionally straining for theoretical trendiness, the collection covers aspects of acquisition and deposition and summarizes the results of microfossil and blood residue analyses. An interesting complement to its southern cousin out of the Reading stable (`Lithic Analysis and Later British Prehistory' BAR 162, 1987).
