Figure 3.5 Schematic representation of the basic 'Levallois concept' as defined by Eric Boëda. The core is divided into two major 'surfaces' (a and b) and two corresponding 'volumes'. The lower face is used to prepare the continuous striking platform around the perimeter of the core, while the upper face is carefully prepared for the production of one or more Levallois flakes The intersection of these two surfaces is defined by the plane 'Pr. After Boëda 1988c.
