Technology
 
The following programs were written in the context of our Paleolithic excavations over the years. Though our purpose in each case was to make our own work more efficient, we have tried to design the programs to be flexible enough for general use. They are distributed here free of charge in their current state. Every attempt has been made to remove bugs, but we also know that bugs still exist. If you encounter problems using these programs, please let us know and we will attempt to address them as time allows.
 
You can learn more about the use of these programs from our publications.
