Material bones

Was in a historical museum on the weekend. There were everyday objects, weapons, jewelry, etc. made of bones.
How widespread was the processing of bone in the Neolithic? Could that influence the craft in AC? Just a consideration …

I’d have to find my note or references, but I belive it was very common. Bones make a wonderful material to work. Easier than wood to drill and very strong.

I am drying a set of ribs right now to make a simple Neolithic instrument as an experimental archeology project.


I made a pendant a few months ago lol

Ouch, so much blood on the tablecloth. That’s the final proof your obsidian is really cutting! :blush:

I use my obsidian blade for weaving, normally. I ate that steak and used a rough obsidian shard to cut

… and remarkably, as the blood snaps up and takes on the shape of a lotus flower … a strong magic :+1:
