How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Article
Residue analysis is a sub-discipline in archaeology that uses a variety of techniques which can be useful for determining the function of prehistoric stone tools. Past experimental studies have revealed the non-diagnostic nature of residues under reflected light microscopy and the challenges of identifying them as plant or animal and assigning them...
Article
Optical (OM) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) are among the most common techniques to characterize use-wear and residue patterns on stone tool surfaces. While the short depth of field of optical microscopes can be solved with SEM, the observation of use-wear and residue patterns at specific points can sometimes make it difficult to draw an ov...

A use-wear analysis was carried out on a specific mobile toolkit belonging to level M of the Middle Paleolithic site of Abric Romaní (Barcelona, Spain), which is dated to MIS 3, between 51 and 55 Ka BP. In an environment rich in local and regional chert sources and in a technological context marked by expedient behavior, a set of flakes, which also...

Residue analysis is an analytical discipline aimed to provide clues about past tool function in archaeological contexts. Generally, three are the main limitations that the residue analyst has to face: the impact of different sedimentary environments in residue preservation, the causes of residue deposition, and the overlap in morphology between dif...

Use-wear and residue analysis are two analytical disciplines which can provide clues about past tool function. Optical light (OLM) and Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) are between the most common techniques to characterize use-wear and residue patterns in stone tool surfaces. While the little depth of �eld of optical microscopes can be solved wit...

A micro and macro-wear analysis was carried out in a specific mobile toolkit belonging to level M of the Middle Palaeolithic site of Abric Romaní (Barcelona, Spain), which is dated at MIS 3, between 51 { 55 Ka BP. In an environment rich in local flint sources and in a technological context marked by an expedient behavior, a set of natural backed kn...
Conference Paper
Several methods and techniques have been applied to identify the nature and morphology of residues in prehistoric stone tools, like optical and scanning electron microscopies, chemical analysis, blind tests or infrared spectroscopy. However, none of these techniques alone have solved the problem of distinguish between non-use and use-related residu...

Project
The Middle Paleolithic site of Nahal Mahanayeem Outlet (NMO), OSL dated to 60k years BP, on the bank of the Upper Jordan River, is unique among Levantine Middle Paleolithic sites. NMO is interpreted as an open-air, short-term and task-specific hunting and butchering locality, with a small, but highly significant, lithic assemblage. Hence, NMO flint assemblage is ideal for usewear trace study that can support or refute the interpretations emerging from the data. This study will apply high resolution traceology study of numerus NMO artifacts accompanied by controlled experiments. The research is collaborative study between Israel and well established and equipped traceology laboratory of the IPHES, Spain. Results will be compared with the large body of data available for Iberian MP sites (e.g. Abric Romaní).
