Handmade. Crafting and social strategies in the Scandinavian Neolithic
Research areas and keywords
The manufacture of so-called prestige goods, and how they were used in social transactions, is the focus of this project. Who was able to make the high-quality flint daggers? Who was allowed to make them? Were all members of the society able to make such objects or were craft specialists at work? Questions about crafting skill, the transferral of practical know-how, and the contribution of talent and practice to crafting expertise are also addressed.
