Abstract:
The authors present a crossbeam co-ordinate calliper that both geometrically locates and measures distances between morphologically homologous landmarks upon lithic nuclei via a single protocol. Intra- and inter-observer error tests provide evidence that error levels associated with the instrument fall within acceptable ranges. In addition, they present empirical examples of application in the form of a multivariate analysis of fifty-five discrete morphometric variables, and a 3D geometric morphometric analysis of co-ordinate landmark configurations derived from Pleistocene lithic nuclei (i.e. `cores' sensu lato). They also introduce to lithic studies some techniques for the study of shape variation that have previously been used with success in biological morphometric analyses. They conclude that use of an instrument such as the crossbeam co-ordinate calliper may provide a useful adjunct to traditional techniques of lithic analysis, particularly in developing a quantitative morphometric approach.
