Associating residues and wear traces as indicators of hafting methods: Α view from the chipped stone industries from the island of Gavdos, Crete

In J. Marreiros, N. Bicho, J.F. Gibaja (eds), International Conference on Use-Wear Analysis. Use-Wear 2012 (Cambridge 2014): 714-726

Macroscopic and microscopic analysis of a sample of flint and obsidian artefacts from an excavated area with LN/FN/EB finds on the island of Gavdos has revealed use-wear traces and organic residues, very possibly of the hafting arrangement, on a black flint tool which appears to be the hafted element of a sickle.
