Quantifying the size of artefact assemblages
Stone artefacts are broken, burnt and weathered. Processes such as these may act differentially across categories, and will therefore affect interpretations of assemblage size and composition. This paper advocates a more detailed consideration of abundance estimates in artefact analyses, being guided by the understandings built up in archaeological studies of fauna, and begins the process by developing some basic units of measurement for counting flaked stone.
