This blog is a document of my own enthusiasm (obsession?) for lithic artifacts. I combine this highly emotional theme with my scientific interest. The “semiophores” concept (http://www.aggsbach.de/2010/09/collecting-paleolithic-artefacts/) referes to my fascination on artifacts but my scientific attitude remains related to my efforts of being updated with the literature.
This blog is an instrument of self-education but not a collectors site showing “belles pieces” without any explanation, although I can not deny that artifacts are some kind of “treasures” in a quite naïve sense for me. This blog is not a blog on “breaking news”, and does not predominantly deal with genetics and epigenetics or molecular archaeology, although these topics are indispensable for any up-to date discussion. It remains a blog “simply in stones”.
