Rock and Roll: 13th International Symposium on Knappable Materials, Tarragona, 4-7 October 2021 S12

Session 12: Use-Wear Analysis: The Same Protocols for Different Materials?


In the last years, significant advances are taking place in functional studies. Now it will be an excellent opportunity to gather and discuss the current state-of-art. We invite researchers working on functional analysis to present their front-line research, including investigators working on different materials (such as bone, teeth, antler, shell and lithics) and develop a range of analytical approaches (microscopic techniques, quantitative approaches, experimental procedures).

Abstracts for oral communication or posters should have a maximum of 400 words (excluding authors details) and can include up to 3 references and 1 figure. Please, for logistical reasons, be aware that participants need to register before submitting their proposals. Given the exceptional situation, the symposium will be held ENTIRELY VIRTUALLY (4-7 October 2021).

Deadline to submit your abstract is July 1st.
