The "Stone Age Hunter" of the Archaeological-Ecological Centre Albersdorf, the Educator Mr. Werner Pfeifer, tested different ways of and different materials for producing (possible) Stone Age Glue Types from the Palaeolithic and Mesolithic time, which could have been used without ceramics.
He had compiled a first report about the results (see attachment!), but continues with his experiments.
The Glue experiments are also used for public demonstrations in summer 2014 and have been also pracitcally demonstrated on the OpenArch-Conference in june 2014 in Kierikki, Finland.
