To use or not to use a Minoan Chisel?: Ancient technology in a new light
2013 (English)In: The 7th Experimental Archaeology Conference, Cardiff University and St Fagans National History Museum, Wales, 11-12 January 2013., 2013Conference paper, Poster (Other academic)
This paper concerns the use and users of the Minoan chisels. Previous research conducted includes chisel typologies and hypotheses of the chisels’ use on wood, stone, metal and bone. However, no further investigations have been conducted in order to try and substantiate these assumptions. Furthermore, if the chisels were used in these different materials and for different work, would it not be possible to exclude certain types of chisels for certain use? That is, would all the chisels be suitable for working on wood, stone, metal or bone? Would the use-wear on the chisels be the same for stone and metal? My aim is to complement and explore these theories with experiments and visual examinations of the Minoan chisels.
