Stone artifacts are critical for investigating the evolution of hominin behavior—they are among our only proxies for hominin behavior in deep time. Hominin cognition and skill are often inferred by reconstructing the technical decisions hominins made throughout the knapping process.

Taking the two meanings of the term chullpa (a sepulcher and mythical pre-solar beings) as a point of departure, I try an archaeological approach to practices based on a conception of active materiality and non-linear time.
