This paper presents a technological study of lithic assemblages of the Zoko Andi 1 site during its occupation between the Initial Late Holocene (ca. 1500-1300 years BP) and the Final Late Holocene (ca. 800-400 years BP). The management of rocks in each temporal lapse, as well as the differences and similarities between the temporal lapses, was addressed on the basis of a technomorphological and technological (operational chains) analysis. In this way, the information generated contributed to broaden the knowledge about the production of lithic artifacts throughout the Late Holocene. The results were also integrated to other lines of evidence, contributing with information on the functionality of the site and settlement strategies of the occupying groups.
