VIRTUAL - Wicked Awesome Rocks: Investigating the use of stone tools with microwear analysis – What are stone tools used for?

April 11, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

This is an online event.

Heather Rockwell, Assistant Professor of Cultural and Historic Preservation, Salve Regina University,
This might seem like a question with an obvious answer, but it is one that archaeologists have puzzled for centuries. This presentation will discuss one method of determining how stone tools were used, use-wear analysis. I will first cover a brief history of the technique before describing the process and then show a real world application of the method.
