Lithic Analysis Research Group

The Lithic Analysis Research Group (LARG) is directed by Jeanne Arnold, Professor of Anthropology. LARG shares a space with the Ceramic Research Group and several graduate students. Comparative collections of lithic materials are housed in storage units, and modest topical libraries and article files are maintained. The main goal of LARG is to assemble and maintain resources to assist with teaching the UCLA community about stone materials and stone tools. When resources allow, LARG organizes programs for Cotsen Institute affiliates, including field trips to quarry sites, workshops, or presentations.
