Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document Analysis of the data indicate the site changed in use during the 1000 year period of the Late Archaic. A Falling Springs component is represented in Strata 9E and 8EC. During this time period the inhabitants used Modoc Rock Shelter as a long term base camp in a logistically organized settlement system. The cultural data from Stratum 8E are distinct enough not to fit in a specific phase, but it was used as a generalized short-term occupation residential camp. And during Strata 7E and lower 7E, a Titterington Phase component, the residents used Modoc as a more specialized site, a field camp. The analysis show that the site '…shifted from a logistical organization to a more residentially mobile system, then back to a logistical organization. These patterns underscore the flexibility of prehistoric settlement systems in general and provide a means of reassessing previous interpretations of the Late Archaic period …at Modoc.' (page 127).
