I work in the field offor more than 15 years. Mainly, I specialize in the analysis of function (using use-wear ) of the prehistoric and / tools. However, my interest apply also to many other areas, like building techniques or processing techniques of the different raw materials in prehistory. As an example of more interesting works of this type I’ve realized, that were finished with publications,
I can give researches on: bone and antler softening techniques in prehistory, method of birchproduction without the use of pottery, different types of Stone Ages points and techniques of making holes in stone axes. My present experimental archaeology works concerns i. a. possible function on the Mesolithic tools called “curved knives”, process of creation of the flint scatters (from the point of view of the influence of post depositional processes), function and (generally) spatial organization of the Mesolithic camps. I was also a manager of the three experimental of the prehistoric buildings. Two of them was described in EXARC online Journal (2015/1), the third one is going on.
For three years, in the Institute of Archaeology, Nicolaus Copernicus University (IA UMK), I run classes on experimental archaeology (from this year also for foreign students); for five years on use-wear method (also in English). For 10 years I’m a tutor and scientific coordinator of the works of Society for Experimental Prehistoric Archaeology working in IA UMK. Together, we conduct multifaceted research on experimental archaeology, which you can find out more on our web site: www.keap.umk.pl. I have organized a few experimental archaeology camps. Now, I’m a co-creator of the mini , built at IA UMK.
