Abstract [en]

This paper examines a way of combining the uique experience and knowledge that flint-knapping experiments produce, with a more distant and rational way of conducting research, which is the archaeologist's point of departure. In line with a French epistemological tradition, it is suggested that a relational research process, in which these two perspectives are consciously merged, is needed in order to elucidate the social aspects of technology. In order to illustrate this assertion, the Late neolithic flint dagger production in southern Scandinavia is studied with concepts that allow for a relational perspective.
