Project Description

STONE TOOL USE

For interpreting macro- and microscopic traces on stone tools, use-wear analysis relies for an important part on comparisons with an experimental reference. We examine different aspects with regard to tool use. Aside from exploring the range of prehistoric tasks, the goal is also to understand how tools functioned and how stone tool morphology and use are inter-related. Particular attention is devoted to some tool uses, such as projectiles.
