Record #180126:

The Mackenzie Inuit whale bone industry: raw material, tool manufacture, scheduling and trade / Matthew W. Betts.

Title: The Mackenzie Inuit whale bone industry: raw material, tool manufacture, scheduling and trade / Matthew W. Betts.
Author(s): Betts, Matthew W.
Date: 2007.
In: Arctic. (2007.), Vol. 60(2) (2007)
Abstract: Describes recently excavated archaeological assemblage from McKinley Bay, Northwest Territories, providing evidence of intensive Nuvugarmiut whale bone tool manufacture which can be used to reconstruct reduction sequence. Notes that bowhead bone reduction at McKinley Bay focused on ribs, which were transversely worked into large sections. Cortical blanks were isolated from central rib sections, but proximal and distal rib sections were treated directly as blanks and pre-forms for production of large durable tools.
Notes:

Arctic. Vol. 60(2) :129-144 (2007).
