This edition of the Sixth IFEA Archaeological Meeting presents a compilation of texts dedicated to technological approaches in material studies. The central subject of this book is to show some of the diversity of researches in this field, paying particular attention to Anthropology of techniques, methodology, and development of technological processes’ studies in Turkey. Technological choices, cultural implications and environmental or technical determinism in the development of technological processes are also discussed throughout the different articles.

We conceived this book as an educational support for students and researchers eager to discover the Anthropology of techniques and its related research methodologies. While delivering specific examples from lithic, rock cutting, ornaments making and pottery studies, a specific care is given to the bibliographical references, some of them available in the IFÉA’s library, to help the reader develop his knowledge and accompany him further in his research.
