weird archaeology

DEAR ANTHROPOLOGY/ARCHAEOLOGY TUMBLRS:

I AM LOOKING FOR STUDY PARTICIPANTS IN SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA

Are you healthy, between the age of 18-50 years, and have NOT experienced any shoulder injury or pain in the last two years?

You are invited to participate in a biomechanical study at the University of Sydney Cumberland Campus aimed at investigating shoulder muscle activity during stone tool manufacture. You’ll be required to perform a simple tool manufacture task (training provided) while fine-wire and surface EMG electrodes monitor muscle activity. Participants will be paid $50 cash for their involvement in the study.

I was thinking maybe archaeology or anthropology students in the Sydney area might be interested participating. Especially if you happen to have experience with stone knapping. 

If you’re interested, please contact me (Elen Feuerriegel) either via tumblr or using the details in the image. I’ll give you the information sheet to look over and answer any questions you might have.

Reblogs are appreciated!

The ethical aspects of this study have been approved by the ANU HREC (protocol no. 2014/321).
