Abandonment behavior and the archaeological record
MetadataShow full item record
The way in which people abandon a site affects the patterning of artifacts and the other materials that make up the archaeological record. This thesis analyzes the way in which abandonment behavior can be seen archaeologically through an examination of theoretical issues, ethnoarchaeological data, and published site reports. As a case study, data from the site of Pueblo Blanco, New Mexico, is examined.
