Lithic Analysis

Lithics are usually the only tools preserved in Palaeolithic sites, and are also a major component of late Prehistoric assemblages. For most of human history, stone tools are all that may be available to archaeologists, and therefore are an invaluable source to understand how ancient humans lived. Many disciplines study stone tools, from their function to their form, technology and raw materials. A number of Institute staff members work on several aspects of lithic studies, which include Palaeolithic and later prehistoric assemblages from Africa, Europe and elsewhere. The Institute's dedicated Lithics Laboratory facilitates both staff and student research in this field.
