Paul N. Backhouse


This monograph although concentrating on the Southern High Plains area (USA) represents a tremendous step forward in understanding fire technology and hot rock technology and their role and relationshA within hunter-gatherer societies. It not only elevates the status of hearths and hearthstones as worthy of study within hunter-gatherer research but equally important, also presents new avenues for that research.
