Household climate: Great Basin response to climate change reflected by intrasite zooarchaeology
Author(s): Emily Epstein
Intrasite spatial analysis reveals zooarchaeological remains indicative of Great Basin hunter-gatherer household behaviors. Results indicate the presence and spatial distribution of activity types. Analytical techniques facilitated evaluation of ethnographic models to find the best match to the zooarchaeological situation. Households associated with disparate climatic regimes, while contextually equivalent, exhibit variable zooarchaeological signatures for subsistence, social, and spiritual life.
