Archaeological Artefact Analysis - PREH3017
An introduction to archaeological approaches to the analysis of artefacts. Issues examined include the concept and practice of classification, technological analysis of the manufacturing process, and an introduction to the study of style and function. Both theory and practice of artefact analysis will be covered and students will undertake studies of artefacts in laboratory sessions.

Archaeological Lithic Analysis
Archaeological Lithic Analysis is a reasoned and documented basis for differentiating archaeological probability zones, a corollary of the concept that human behavior is patterned. Testing against an established predictive model substantiates understanding past human behavior, culture change, and adaptation through controlled observation, contextual measurement, controlled collecting, analysis, interpretation, and explanation.

Introduction to Stoneworking
These pages will describe the basics of making and studying stone artefacts. Some necessary terms (ie.jargon) are explained here. Today the art of stoneworking is unfamiliar to most people, and the purpose of this area is to give you an understanding of the study of stone artefacts.

Lithic Technology: Tools for Life

Northeast Lithic Database (NELD) pilot project
Lithics constitute the bulk of archaeological artifacts in the Northeast. Archaeologists and geologists in the region are reexamining how lithic materials are classified and sourced. The Northeast Lithic Database Workgroup (NELD) is comprised of a cooperative group of archaeologists, geologists and other interested parties. This workgroup has recognized a need to compile information concerning lithic materials and their sources in the Northeast. The workgroup is in the process of developing a database on the world wide web to facilitate lithic research.

Obsidian Hydration Analysis Service
OHAS is an archaeological laboratory investigating prehistory using a suite of methods. These include, but are not limited to: transmitted light microscopy, reflected light microscopy, macroscopic analysis, satellite navigation (GPS), geographic information systems (GIS), laser technology, and a hefty computing facility.

SARC is a reference program containing information about the typology, technology, raw materials and study methods of the stone age.

Theory & Methods of Lithic Analysis ANTH 352
Lecture and laboratory on the principles and techniques of stone and bone artifact manufacture, identification, classification, metrical analysis, interpretation, and integration with other classes of archaeological evidence. Emphasis on the use of lithics to test human behavioral models.
