Rhyolite Studies

Rhyolite is one of the most important lithic (stone) resources used by prehistoric populations in the Frederick County area and beyond for manufacturing tools. Ongoing research has revealed that groups throughout history traveled to a large county resource where the material was quarried and then transported along stream drainages as it was worked along the way.
