Archaeological Materials

ICArEHB can provide several different services in the context of archaeological materials analysis. These include:

  • Lithic and ceramic techno-typological studies
  • Lithic use-wear analysis
  • Bone tools technology and use-wear analysis
  • Design, implementation and management of databases for archaeological materials
  • 3D acquisition (photogrammetry and 3d laser scanning) of archaeological materials imagery
  • Artifact photography

All results are delivered with detailed technical reports.

We can also provide training to professionals and non-professionals in the identification, characterization, and representation of several categories of archaeological materials, through the organization of workshops.
