OTR – This Thursday…Ideas in Antler

Don’t forget this Thursday we have Benjamin Elliott discussing; Ideas in Antler: Osseous technologies in Mesolithic Britain

Thursday 24th March, 1pm. Room 410

Feel free to bring your lunch, all welcome!

The British Mesolithic features a fragmented record of antler working practices which extend well beyond the well-studied assemblages of Star Carr and the Oronsay shell middens. However, the comprehensive study of this material has been hampered by a range of analytical and logistical problems, which have prevented national-scale syntheses of this dataset. This paper will present a recent attempt to overcome these challenges, and identify a series of case studies which demonstrate some of the ways technological ideas and ways of making were expressed, borrowed and developed within the British Mesolithic.
