Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document Ahler and Styles analyzed the 1984 data for the Stratum 8E levels to determine if they represent a residential camp or a resource extraction location. To do this they needed to analyze the assemblage diversity. However, during the 1987 excavations, Stratum 8E was removed a a single level and the individual occupations could not be segregated. So they used the data from the 1984 excavations in which Units G and H were excavated in 10 cm levels. The diversity of the lithic tools and faunal species indicate Stratum 8E was a generalized short-term habitation camp.
