The Worked Bone Research Group

The Worked Bone Research Group (WBRG) was formed during an informal meeting in February 1997 in London. The purpose of the WBRG, coordinated by Alice Choyke, is to improve communication between individuals studying worked animal hard tissues (especially bone, antler, and ivory) with special emphasis on archaeological finds around the world. A broad diachronic, and multi-disciplinary approach is emphasized in order to promote the exchange of ideas concerning attitudes to and procurement of raw materials, technology, and cognitive aspects of working osseous materials of all kinds.
