6. Description Abstract The following research is focused on Swiderian blade technology occurring in Poland at the end of Late Palaeolithic. It is a comparative study of lithic refitting research performed on few excavation sites which results were published by various authors. By comparing operation sequences recorded at these Swiderian sites methods of blade production are presented. The study discusses mostly opposed platform cores and different variants of their reduction. This is due to the fact that it was a most commonly recorded debitage on Swiderian sites and therefore the history of research has been strongly focused on such forms. Additionally, the study includes discussion on Swiderian technology seen through perspective of different experimental flintknappers.
