The history of studying complexity theory and fractal geometry started back in the early 20th century and its influence has been tremendously increasing since the 1980’s. A fractal is any pattern that gains a higher complexity when it is magnified. The investigation of ridges and scars of stone tools showed in the past, that these features are pres...

Full-text available
Neanderthals and our human ancestors have coexisted for a large period of time sharing many things in common including the production of tools, which are among the few remaining artefacts providing a possible insight into the different paths of evolvement and extinction. These earliest tools were made of stone using different strategies to reduce a...
At the beginning of the Gravettian/Pavlovian, there is a marked increase in the spectrum of lithic projectile implements (Maier et al. 2020). Traditionally, this increase is described in terms of typologies. While typologies have a long history of application in Palaeolithic archaeology and capture artefact diversity comparatively well, artefact va...
Full-text available
Identifying, analyzing, and explaining trends in the development of material culture is one of the major concerns in prehistoric archaeology. The traditional recording of data in typologies, however, is not optimal for answering the question of diachronic change because typological data capture variability poorly and are often incompatible with mul...
Full-text available
A unique property of the Paleolithic record is the possibility to observe human societies in large areas and over long periods of time. At these large spatial and temporal scales, a number of interesting phenomena can be observed, such as dynamics in the distribution of populations in relation to equally large-scale environmental patterns. In this...
Full-text available
In the contemporary archaeological practice, the academic narrative of a lithic artifact begins directly with its excavation from the ground, and ends as a drawing in the catalog of a publication. This drawing was simultaneously enriched with an interpretation of different traces to bring the artifact in shape, but in the process the artifact gets...
This repository contains derivatives of the Open Access publication by Falcucci & Peresani [FP22]. Our derived dataset (n = 62) is used to demonstrate our segmentation algorithm [BHM23], as shown in [BLM22], [BLM23], [LBM23], and will serve as a benchmark dataset for future analyses. To date, and to the best of our knowledge, our dataset is the fir...
