        With a history spanning 4, years, the archaeological site of Stonehenge has many different meanings to people today. Its ring of standing stones is a masterpiece of engineering, and building it would have taken huge effort from hundreds of well organized people using only simple tools and technologies. The purpose of the ruins is unknown to us. An archaeologist uses many different tools during the course of an investigation, before, during and after the excavations. The photographs in this essay define and describe many of the everyday tools archaeologists use in the process of conducting archaeology. This photo essay uses as its framework the typical course of an archaeological excavation conducted as part of a cultural resource.

      components. The material culture, the tools humans use, is but a small portion of this cul-tural complex.

Traditional archaeological interpretations of stone tools Favor highly formalized, elaborately retouched, standardized core tools Assume that stone tools were made for men to hunt with Downplay or ignore the numerous flake tools that are found in sites.
