The typical approach for archaeological analysis is mainly qualitative and, as such, rather characterized by subjective reasoning and evaluations. Even when some measures are reported in the documentation of artefacts, they are often approximate or ambiguous: different archaeologists may measure very differently, and have no way to specify the exact procedure in their textual description. Conversely, the quantitative approach is based on objective metrics to produce replicable results and, coupled with digital tools, can assist the qualitative analysis in archaological research with no risk of damage. In this paper, we present a geometric-quantitative approach for the analysis of archaeological finds and the preliminary results of an ongoing joint research project of two doctoral students within the frame of the EU GRAVITATE project.
