Standardization of ceramic shape: A case study from the Iron Age pottery from northeastern Taiwan

TLDR
This case study represents an innovative application of outlinebased methods in geometric morphometry to answer the anthropological questions of craft specialization by analyzing outlines of ceramic vessels.

Design Space Constraints and the Cultural Taxonomy of European Final Palaeolithic Large Tanged Points: A Comparison of Typological, Landmark-Based and Whole-Outline Geometric Morphometric Approaches

TLDR
An effort towards a benchmarked, case-transferrable toolkit that comparatively explores relevant techniques centred on outline-based geometric morphometrics (GMM), and shows how a careful application of clustering algorithms to GMM outline data is able to successfully discriminate between distinctive tool shapes.

Advances in digital pottery analysis

TLDR
This survey focuses on analytical techniques directed specifically at archaeological pottery research in this survey and considers techniques based on heterogeneous sources such as drawings, photographs, 3D scans and CT volume data.

A Collaborative Model for Lithic Shape Digitization in Museum Settings

THE ECONOMY OF SPECIALIZED CERAMIC CRAFT PRODUCTION IN THE CASAS GRANDES REGION

Recent analyses use geometric morphometrics (GM), the quantitative study of shape and its variation, to examine aspects of the archaeological record. Our research builds on such applications to

The Standardization Hypothesis and Ceramic Mass Production: Technological, Compositional, and Metric Indexes of Craft Specialization at Tell Leilan, Syria

Archaeologists often use measurements of standardization in ceramics as evidence for specialized craft production. Analysis of fine-ware bowl kiln wasters from the urban center of Leilan, Syria (ca.

Does the Standardization of Ceramic Pastes Really Mean Specialization?

In the literature dealing with the development of ceramic specialization, paste uniformity has been suggested as a surrogate index of product standardization and the result of a more intensive level

TLDR
The results suggest that third millennium ceramic production can be compared to low-rate production observed ethnographically and Indexing degrees of standardization needs to take into account the cumulative effect of production events that play on the CV (Coefficient of Variation) values.
