Ground Stone Use-Wear Digital Reference Materials


Images of experimentally generated use-wear: wild grass seed processing on a variety of basalt and sandstone mortars and grinding slabs

This collection of photomicrographs and photographs is posted on tDAR to facilitate data sharing and comparisons between different experimental use-wear programs. The images can also function as a teaching aid, or as a supplemental resource for use-wear analysis of ground stone. Images were created as part of the following project: Formal models of Traditional Milling Tool Design, NSF award 1452079, Tammy Buonasera, PI, University of Arizona. This resource was posted online largely through the efforts of Kayla Worthy (University of Arizona). Natasha Rapp (University of Arizona) helped to record use-wear.
