STONE AGE REFERENCE COLLECTION


SARC has been developed for the teaching department of the Institute of Archaeology, History and Conservation(IAKH) at the University of Oslo, Norway.

SARC is a reference program containing information about the typology, technology, raw materials and study methods of the stone age.

It is available in English and Norwegian.


Typology

Main article: Typology.

"Science of classifying stone tools by form, techniques and technological traits. Must include duplication of the technique by first observing the intentional form, then reconstructing or replicating the tool in the exact order of the aboriginal workman. Shows elements of culture. Typology cannot be based on function." (Crabtree 1982.57)
