The purpose of this paper is to analyze tools found at Hanna’s Town to determine the nature of the various tasks performed by its residents, and the town’s economic conditions. This analysis aims to answer these research questions: (1.) What kinds of tools are present at Hanna’s Town and what tasks are they associated with? (2.) Does the spatial arrangement of these artifacts reveal any information about where these tasks took place? (3.) Are there any relationships between these tools that may indicate the presence of a specific profession in Hanna’s Town? (4.) What can the quantity of artifacts and their condition (modifications, evidence of repair, and stylistic variation) tell us about the availability of these goods through trade at Hanna’s Town? This paper discusses the preliminary results of this study.
