Volume 46 Archeologický ústav AV ČR, Brno, v. v. i. Brno 2014, 185 p. ISBN 978-80-86023-41-0 ISSN 1804-1345 The monographic study based on all available lithic evidences presented in the Catalogue. It gives the over-all characteristics ofchipped stone industries of the cultural identities of period of the Young Eneolithic in Moravia (the Jevišovice and the Bošáca) and Czech Silesia (the Globular Amphorae). A brief intrusion of the Bošáca culture into territories of east Bohemia (Obědovice) has been also taken into account. In general, lithic materials of the period in question indicate continuation of Early and Middle Eneolithic chipping traditions. However, there can be observed the first signs of the changes in management of stone material which would become emblematic for the Late Neolithic: sub-group IIIc of the Moravian Corded Ware culture and younger groups of the Moravian Bell Beaker culture). The most significant element of these changes are increasing use of local rocks and decreasing importance of imported raw materials.
