Use-wear and residue analyses of lithic artefacts from Northern Norway
A test study of a range of lithic artefacts manufactured from different raw materials was conducted in 2017. This indicated a very promising potential, and in 2018 a pilot study of slate knives were initiated. Extensive experiments on reproduced edges were conducted and analyses are ongoing.
