Technology in Archaeology


Proceedings of a 2005 Copenhagen workshop on the study of technology as a means of gaining insight into social and cultural aspects of Prehistory. The papers range across palaeolithic and mesolithic topics and are concerned with material from various sites in Scandinavia and north west Europe, and in experimental and theoretical approaches to its understanding and interpretation.
