Subjects: Theoretical orientation in research and its results (121); Organization and analysis of results of research (128); Ontogenetic data (145); Lithic industries (324); Settlement patterns (361); General tools (412); Household (592); Functional specialization areas (913);

Abstract: 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.
