A Microwear Analysis of Tools from Site 10-241, Easter Island
Abstract

A high-power use-wear analysis has been conducted on a sample of chipped obsidian artifacts from Site 10-241, an upland site located approximately 5 km from the southern coast of Easter Island near Vaihu (Figure 1). The site was occupied between AD 1400 and AD 1680 (Stevenson, Pollack, and Ramirez 1991). Site 10-241 was selected for excavation in 1989 in order to document the variety of prehistoric economic activities conducted at high inland sites.
