Current research on the carved, pecked, and incised art of Neolithic stelae and passage tombs in Brittany and Ireland has required the creation of a new method of recording. This new technique has several advantages over traditional recording methods (tracing and rubbing): It is noninvasive and it allows very precise data acquisition, as well as providing an accurate record of the carved representations. The present paper describes the four stages of the process and presents its analytical capacities, using as an example the carved axe from the Table des Marchands passage tomb.
