Abstract

Bone artifacts have been found in various prehistoric sites in Indonesia ranging from the islands of Sumatra, Java, Bali, Sulawesi to Papua. The research on bone artifact is very interesting to study because it has important information in revealing human life in prehistoric times. This paper discusses the technology of bone tool artifacts found at the Andarewa Cave Site in Papua region with descriptions and analysis method. From the excavations carried out at this site, several anatomical components of several animals were found which were used to make bone tools. These bones came from couscous animals, birds, bats and fish. While the technology used to form tools is the fracturing technique, hole technique, cropping technique, and rubbing technique. The function of bone tools from the Andarewa Site is as a tool for knitting (needles) and gouging. The bone tool that was found was associated with many shellfish and stone flakes.
