Spatial Analysis of Domestic Structures
Author(s): Linda Scott Cummings
Cooking, food processing, and consumption all contribute anthropic activity markers traceable using archaeobotanic analyses and chemical signatures. Grid square sampling illuminates patterns for comparison with distribution of artifacts and architectural elements, revealing patterned activities that identify food storage in vessels, grinding, and cooking. Multiple lines of evidence, each providing only a portion of the record, contribute to better understanding economic activity and provide opportunity to assess human interactions within that space. Representing results of spatial analysis using Surfer depicts people going about their daily lives.
