Download Citation on ResearchGate | Intrasite Spatial Analysis in Archaeology | Most people recognise that their patterns of personal behaviour are defined and . implications that extend well beyond Paleoindian archaeology. As Carr () noted, modern approaches to intrasite spatial analysis developed out of attempts . The interpretative power of quantitative intra-site spatial analysis has long been recognised by archaeologists. On the contrary, very few ethnoarchaeological.

For example, La Quemada in Zacatecas, Mexico, endured for years but was abandoned ca. What remains unknown are the social mechanisms that underlie the creation, maintenance, and disruption of stylistic similarities in northern frontier material culture traditionally interpreted as shared social identities.
The collective social identification framework allows for both the exploration of the processes through which individuals identify with groups i. In the case of La Quemada, it is hypothesized that a change in the way arcuaeology occupants analysie to one another categorically ultimately contributed to its decline and abandonment. This paper systematically examines the La Quemada ceramic assemblage to determine whether the perceived categorical shift did occur and will critically evaluate whether ceramic stylistic changes are a good proxy for understanding categorical identification in the northern frontier region.

In this paper,we discuss the results of an artefact survey and a sampling collection in the indigenous settlement of Terravecchia di Cuti, in the chora of the Greek colony of Himera Sicily.
The whole area of the town was gridded with The whole area of the town was gridded with squares of 10×10 m to isolate functional areas and identify the most interesting zones for new archaeological samples.
Intrasite Spatial Analysis
The survey was carried out in two fields m 2counting and recording all findings. Only diagnostic pottery and figured pottery, antefixes, loom weights, millstones and so intrasie were collected.
We can observe, analysing in detail our results for both fields, that functional areas could not be isolated, perhaps because the urban and social organisation of the settlement did not provide for clear distinctions. The multi-functionality of everyday objects, also, does not allow us to recognise these areas. Finally, we must consider the effect of decades of ploughing carried out on the site.
This paper is a discussion of theory and method used in intrasite spatial analysis – the analysis of “living floors”.
Processes in the formation of the archaeological record such as abandonment, discard, loss, and caching, are examined Processes in the formation of the archaeological record such as abandonment, discard, loss, and caching, are examined. There is also some investigation into factors archweology may disturb or obscure patterning on an occupation site.
Examples to illustrate the discussion are taken from analyses of settlement sites which date from the Mesolithic and Neolithic in primarily Denmark and Sweden. The Galois lattice Birkhoff is recommended for the analysis of two-mode social networks Freeman and WhiteDuquenne A Galois lattice can be viewed as the unfolding of the structure of multidimensional, two-mode binary data.
Living in a Palaeoriverbed: Peeters, From sherds to functional assemblages – functional zoning and the collected Late Roman ceramics on the surface of Tanagra, in Y. One of the cities that has been studied during the long tradition of survey archaeology in Boeotia is the city of Tanagra, which is positioned strategically in a relatively fertile area along the Asopos-river, famous in myth, in southeast One of the cities that has been studied during the long tradition of survey archaeology in Boeotia is the city of Tanagra, which is positioned strategically in a relatively fertile area along the Asopos-river, famous in myth, in southeast Boeotia Farinetti While one should be careful in equaling this relatively large number of Late Roman ceramics with, for example, population figures, it seems reasonable to state that there was a substantial phase of occupation at Tanagra in this span of time.
Geophysical and architectural examinations that were carried out at this site by the Boeotia Project under the direction of B. As it is hard to relate the assemblages of ceramics on the surface of Tanagra to individual domestic units that play a central role in discussions on ancient housing, this paper will turn to functional zoning, which is a commonly applied approach in survey archaeology to break down a city into smaller units for the comparative evaluation of bodies of ceramics.
A 3D digital workflow for archaeological intra-site research using GIS. Across a range of archaeological projects in Northern Greece, a context-based system, which has much in common with similar stratigraphic methods applied elsewhere in the world, is in use to record the excavation process. Here, we discuss a formal data model and Ground stone tools and spatial organization at the Mesolithic site of font del Ros southeastern Pre-Pyrenees, Spain.
Used archzeology ground stone tools help identify a range of tasks related to basic domestic activities associated with subsistence. Here, we combine techno-morphological analysis and the study of use-wear patterns with intra-site spatial Here, we combine techno-morphological analysis and the study of use-wear patterns with intra-site spatial analysis of tool distribution at the Font del Ros SG unit southeastern Pre-Pyrenees, Spain.
Successive occupations during the Boreal climatic phase characterize this site. We have identified areas that may correlate with specific activities that could represent internal diachronic events on surfaces with little vertical dispersion. In this approach, ground stone tools are key artifacts that define domestic activities usually considered as having little archeological visibility, and analywis identify activities undertaken across different parts of the site.
Intra-site spatial patterns help us define the domestic aspect of Mesolithic hunter-gatherer lifestyle in the northeastern Iberian Peninsula. This book chapter has no abstract.
