Geometric morphometrics is a specific technique used to learn on spatial and temporal variability of specific shapes. Originally developed within the realm of Biology, archaeologists have by now widely adopted it to infer on material culture patterns. However, the application of the technique for the analysis of material culture is not always straightforward and comes with its very own challenges and caveats.

In this talk, the most common procedures and applications of the technique will be reviewed, including what are the specific problems derived from its application on anthropogenic material. Additionally, some examples will be offered on how can we bring this technique forward, diversify its uses and integrate it into broader research questions, so that we can develop further its great potential.
