Description Chipped stone industry artifacts (689 pcs) were processed from the southern segments of roundel enclosure at Těšetice-Kyjovice. Local raw material prevailed, especially Krumlovský les II and I chert and siliceous weathering products of serpentinites. Imported raw material was represented only by few artifacts. There was more cores and pre-core forms compared to most roundel enclosures. Flakes were more frequent than blades. Comparing several Slovakian roundel enclosures, some differences in distribution of raw material were possible to be seen. In this paper an attempt was made to determine the primary source of siliceous weathering products of serpentinites. This attempt was not successful due to insufficient database of this raw material.
