Experimenting with Multilevel Agent Based Archaeological Modeling in NetLogo
Author(s): Jon Carroll
Agent Based Modeling (ABM) has become increasingly popular because of its relatively shallow learning curve and robust capacity for simulating social and environmental phenomena. This paper discusses new developments in ongoing work simulating social interaction in Precontact small-scale societies using NetLogo, a freely available software package. Model design, assessment and experimentation of a multilevel ABM are discussed, as well as how the simulation results compare to real world, geospatially referenced archaeological datasets drawn from the Great Lakes region of North America.
