Abstract: this research sets up an investigative protocol that guides archaeologists, scientists
and museum professionals to recognise, study, interpret, and properly preserve ground stone tools (GST) from Early Upper Palaeolithic sites.
The goal is to develop a multi-scale advanced heuristic, for the comprehension of GST function and the
processes in which they were involved, in order to REVEAL artefacts' complex biography.
