Abstract: The technological debris collected during the 2010 Telangana survey forms one of the key project datasets and its macro-morphological analysis is an integral component of the post-survey treatment of the data (Fig. 1). The aim of this analysis is to increase our understanding of the nature of the technological processes represented at the locations recorded during the field survey. This includes at a primary level the identification of both smelting and crucible steel refining, and at a more detailed level, variations in these processes. By assessing and comparing assemblages of technological debris from individual locations a composite picture of the technology carried out within this landscape can be achieved.
