Typology and the concept of curation : a study of transverse arrowheads of the Late Scandinavian Mesolithic
Summary, in English
One contemporary, and often accepted, typology of transverse arrowheads is presented along with a summary of typological development and debates. The concept of curation, ﬁrst introduced by L. Binford in the 1970s, is discussed and taken into consideration when examining transverse arrowheads from two Late Mesolithic sites in Scania, southern Sweden.
Finally, a small-scale experiment including mounting and reworking a transverse arrowhead was conducted. Against the background of the typological debate and the concept of curation, the results of the experiment are discussed and compared to the archaeological record from the two sites
