Aigner and Fullem examined the distribution of
the lithic tools (mainly cores) to determine manufacturing areas or workshops.
The work areas were associated with houses but were not found on the house
floors, which is similar to living Aleut communities. ('Aleut ... manufacturing
takes place outside the house,' [page 74].) Artifact patterns also indicate one
family per house. Handedness was also used to help determine work areas and
indicated a 2:1 ratio of right to left-handedness.
