In archaeological study, method of experiment and use-wear analysis is an efficient supplement to the method of typology. This method has been applied and developing since the 1950s by Soviet archaeologists and it is also called the Semenov method (after the name of Prof. S.A. Semenov, its creator). Its basic principle is that from archaeological artifacts, the researchers study the traces of manufacture and wear left on their surfaced by using microscope. From this, they combine it with the experimental method to define the functions of the tools. This is also a methos of studying ancient economy in archaeology. The paper not only introduses methods and its achievements in the Soviet union and western countries but also analyses in details the results of studies conducted by Vietnamese researchers in this direction.
