    Voor de kust van Zuid-Holland liggen verschillende zandwingebieden. Uit dit kleine gedeelte van de Noordzee komt een enorm aantal spitsen, de punten van jachtwerktuigen. Er zijn al ruim 1000 spitsen gevonden en dit worden er elk jaar meer. Wat kunnen deze spitsen ons vertellen over overlevingsstrategieën van jagers- verzamelaars

    Diving into the life of a Mesolithic archer:Use wear analysis and experimental archaeology on Doggerland bone and antler points

    Get PDF
    I am reconstructing the behaviour of hunter-gatherers by use wear analysis on bone and antler points and experimental archaeology. The following aspects will be investigated:• Binding of points to shafts• Development of use wear by carrying arrows in a quiver• Development of use wear during use as arrowheads• Taphonomical processesThis research is part of my PhD project about human-red deer relationships in postglacial Doggerland. The overarching NWO project is called Resurfacing Doggerland

    Hunting beneath the waves:Bone and antler points from the North sea Doggerland off the Dutch coast

    Bone and antler barbed points form one of the most common categories of finds from the submerged prehistoric landscape of the North sea, also known as ‘Doggerland’. They are usually found in redeposited sediments from the off-shore coastal zone. Some 30 years ago a first analysis of these hunting weapons was published, based on more than 400 finds. Meanwhile their numbers have doubled and verge on 1000, making them one of the larger artefact groups from this relatively unknown area. Also the number of sites from which thesepoints derive has increased due to coastal reinforcement and the extension of Rotterdam harbour. Gradually more information is becoming available that these points can contribute to inter-site distinctions and different subgroups. While there is a need for further dating and chronological control, this find group, in combination with for instance characteristic lithic finds and human remains, might in the future provide a better grip on the communities of hunter-gatherers that inhabited this area. This is of particular importance since within the spectrum of finds there are two size groups. The smaller points, of a length of up to 88.5 mm, appear to form a separate group of points in the find spectrum of Western and Northern Europe
