Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document Nelson uses the chipped stone assemblages to infer general shifts in subsistence patterns. 'The analysis of chipped stone from Galaz is oriented toward describing subsistence practices during the Late Pithouse and Classic Mimbres period occupation of the site. Food selection is viewed as a varying process that can be inferred from the form of chipped stone artifacts.' (page 225). 'From patterns of variation in the composition of chipped stone samples, I have concluded that the Late Pithouse and Classic Mimbres people exploited more plant food and hunted fewer large animals than either earlier or later populations. There are some inconsistencies in the patterning of the data; these probably result primarily from the fact that chipped stone data are an indirect measure of food selection.' (page 236).
