The ®ake negatives are rather small, measuring around 3 cm in maximum dimension, and are wedgeshaped with feather terminations. LU-II presented a single basalt freehand ®ake. This ®ake presented a ®at striking platform modi¤ed by trimming, as well as a feathered termination.

The extraction of ®akes following parallel ®aking formats remained the primary mode of core-®ake reduction from LU-IV (transitional period) to LU-VII (Chican Ostionoid occupation). In addition to parallel ®aking protocols, post-Saladoid contexts in this site contained evidence of multidirectional ®aking as a secondary ®ake extraction approach. This was represented both by the production of bidirectional and multidirectional cores, as well as by freehand ®akes with randomly oriented dorsal scar patterns (IIA-3).
