The first group 'morphology' contains all the attributes and measurements related to the morphology both of the artefact and of the edge. These include the following:

The shape of an artefact was initially obtained through the ratio length/width following Grace (1989) and were grouped in the following way: very long (>3); long (1.2–3); square (0.8–1.2); short (0.3–0.8); very short (<0.3).

The shape (Z) (Shiel ratio) was then recalculated as Z=I2/S. This gives a range from >1, which is planar, ~1 is cubic and <1 is columnar.

The second group contains all the macroscopic observations, obtained at 10x magnifications, related to edge damage following Grace (1989). These include:

The third group contains the results of the microscopic observations following Grace (1989). These were obtained at 200x magnifications. This group includes the following observations;

The final group contains all the ethnographic information. This includes the following;
