Quick Reference

[Ar]

Roughly U‐shaped stone tool with a transverse cutting edge. Acheulian bifacial cleavers resemble truncated handaxes with a straight or oblique edge instead of a point. On flake cleavers the cutting edge is generally formed by the intersection of the primary flake surface and a transverse flake seat on the upper surface.
