|Title:||The Finished Artefact Fallacy: Acheulean Hand-axes and Language Origins||Contributor(s):||Davidson, Iain (author)||Publication Date:||2002||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/1837||Abstract:||Approaches to the study of the origins of language have three major sources of evidence: (1) from modern humans, including psychology and linguistics; (2)from modern non-human primates, including their communicative abilities; (3) from archaeology. This chapter is about the third of these - the archaeological evidence of what actually happened. Ten years ago, I outlined problems with the traditional framework of understanding stone tools (Davidson and Noble 1993; Gibson and Ingold 1993). In this chapter, i will return to issues I raised on that occasion and present more evidence and argument about Acheulean hand-axes.||Publication Type:||Book Chapter||Source of Publication:||The Transition to Language, p. 180-203||Publisher:||Oxford University Press||Place of Publication:||Melbourne, Vic.||ISBN:||0199250669
