Abstract


Organizing a collection of articles on lithic studies in Portuguese does not seem, at first, a challenging task. After all, Portugal already has a tradition of decades of research on the subject, which has also increased in Brazil in recent years. Therefore, it was expected that most of the articles published in this edition would come from these two countries. The challenge was to include articles on research carried out in other Portuguese-speaking countries, as they have few or no archaeological research institutions. And of the studies on the lithic industries in these countries, most are carried out by researchers from North America or Europe, especially Portuguese archaeologists.
