Missing the Point: Identifying Perishable Projectiles in the Archaeological Record (2017)
For decades, archaeologists have used replicative studies to develop a better understanding of prehistoric technology. Many replicative studies have focused on the manufacture and use of stone projectiles, resulting in a detailed understanding of the design of hunting weapons in relation to various features of the environment and, in turn, elegant explanations for technological change over time. Yet if ethnographic accounts are any indication, lithic technology was only one (perhaps minor) part...
Modeling the Replacement of Atlatl by Bow Weaponry: Technological Learning Curves and Task Differentiation in Prehistory (2015)
Understanding technological replacement is a ubiquitous problem in archaeology. Modeling the transition from atlatl to self bow has implications for elucidating the driving mechanisms behind why and how prehistoric culture change occurs worldwide. At different periods of human prehistory, atlatls were replaced by self bows as primary hunting weapons on all continents except Australia. Previous scholars have hypothesized that this shift may have occurred when changes in environment/subsistence...

Social Processes and Technological Change (2015)
Archaeologists are much concerned with, and often have evidence for studying, the effects of technological change on social processes. In this paper, I reverse the causal arrow and examine social processes that can initiation technological change. Among these varied social processes, I discuss here peer competitions; social role expectations; new social groups, social roles, and activities; and maintaining a system of status differentiation. Each of these processes can serve as fillips to...
