An assessment of materials and methods used in the reproduction of anthropological specimens
Replicas or reproductions are routinely used in anthropological research. In the past, attention has focussed on gross morphological dimensions of these reproductions. Recently, however, these replicas have been used in the analysis of microstructural detail of many substances of anthropological interest including bone, tooth, stone tools, plant and ceramic remains. This research details the current body of information available on the materials used in the fabrication of these reproductions. With this technical information, protocols are established for their use in both micro- and macro-scopic examinations.
