Title

Skating on bones in the past and today (Hans Christian Küchelmann and Petar Zidarov) 2005

Description

Replicas of three different pairs of bone skates were reproduced after medieval finds and intensively tested under different conditions applying techniques described and illustrated in historical sources and ethnographic descriptions. While the main focus of this paper are the experiences from replicating and using skates, some new evidence about chronology and geographical distribution is
added as well as a comparison of the surface alterations observed on archaeological bone skate finds and the replicas.
