The paper discusses three flint inventories of the Globular Amphorae culture from the site in Wilczyce located on the Sandomierz Upland (Świętokrzyskie Voivodeship, Lesser Poland). The said inventories were collected during the exploration of settlement-type pits. The paper also includes a functional analysis of all tools and blades and the collection of selected flakes. The raw material structure of the discussed inventories shows that the Late Neolithic communities from Wilczyce primarily used Świeciechów flint, while based on the analyses of microdamage it was established that the dominating activity was treating and processing plants, whereas other organic materials such as hides, wood, and bone and antler were less often treated at that site. According to 14C dates, communities of the Globular Amphorae culture settled in the Wilczyce microregion in the earliest phase of that culture’s expansion on the Sandomierz Upland area.
