Talk in the Department of Human Evolution

Shared Seminar Room (U2.50)

Abstract:
During the last forty years my colleague Dieter Schäfer and I investigated Palaeolithic finds from different depositional situations and found under quite different uncovering conditions. We decided to include in our studies not only the modified pieces as finished "tools" but also the remains of their production from all stages of the chaine operatoire. Even the flakes as results originating in the working process from preparing raw material up to tool making and resharpening serve us to explain not only what our ancestors have done but also how did they make it. Interestingly, we found comparison possibilities between flake inventories representing "stages of technical evolution" more or less independent from the precise functional requirements of the flake-making process. Thus we have a tool to compare raw material preparation inventories, killing / butchering sites, and settlement places with the same methods of artefact description over several hundreds of millenia during the Older Stone Age.
