The unique Lithic Share feature allows app users to upload their own examples and share them with the community. For no extra cost, this further increases the database that is available to you, providing an ever increasing resource. So if you have a passion for Hand Axes, teach history, are studying for a qualification or you are just fascinated by our ancient past, you'll be sure to enjoy this extensive, private collection that has not been previously published. About The Lithic Share Project: Mission Statement. The projectâ€™s aim is simpleâ€¦ to provide a platform that allows the sharing of lithics & associated prehistoric artefacts from around the world. And in doing so, create an unprecedented & comprehensive resource to assist study in this field. Societies, organisations, museums and private collectors may all contribute to the database by uploading images & details. Thus granting public access to items that may otherwise have been unavailable for study. The dedicated Lithic Share area within the app, encourages community members to easily upload their collections and offers them the option of having their contributions attributed to them. The project helps safeguard the known provenance of lithics, ensuring that this valuable data remains protected, even if ownership changes. Purchasing The Lithic Share Project app, entitles lifetime membership of this ongoing, ever increasing, dedicated resource. As the project grows, members are encouraged to utilise the database for research into other aspects of human prehistory. For example, by assessing similarities between lithics from different places, we can determine patterns of trade and the transfer of knowledge between peoples. We hope you enjoy and contribute to The Lithic Share Project.
