Tracking early human behaviour through plant processing and -exploitation
Connecting people and technologies
Ongoing microwear analysis of the flint artefacts from the Funnelbeaker period suggests that flint had a pivotal role in the representation and structuration of the cosmological order of Funnelbeaker society.
A biographical approach to stone and bone tools in the Rhine/Meuse delta from Late Mesolithic to Bronze Age
Crafting networks in early farming societies: tracing the residues of Neolithic activities through the study of stone artefacts
This project investigates a key research question in the study of many different societies: how do changing strategies and technologies of production constrain and shape social relations?
Home sweet home: investigating Neolithic houses in Britain through microwear and residue analysis of stone tools
What is a house? The answer to this question may seem obvious to us, but what did a house represent to the people that first built them during the Neolithic period 5000 years ago? Did they view their domiciles in the same way that we do today?
Crafting Lifestyles: A biographical approach to material cultural interactions between Caribbean communities and Europeans across the historical divide (AD 1000-1800)
Examining continuity and transformations in the use of material culture in the Lesser and Greater Antilles through microwear study of formal artefacts (with a focus on ground stone implements, ornaments, and ritual paraphernalia).
Numerous beads and pendants of amber, jet and bone have been found in Dutch Neolithic and Bronze Age context, both in settlements and in graves. Because ornaments are personal items, they are closely linked with people’s identity.
Basketry, cordage and textiles made of plant fibers or bark are rarely preserved in the archaeological record.
Building a Stone Age house using only Stone Age tools is unique in Europe and has taught us a great deal about tool use, the amount of labour and material and the knowledge and skills required. It was also a great experience for students and local volunteers.
