Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
In this dissertation about a previously-excavated site the author used museum collections, studying features and artifacts and their placements within the excavation units in order to understand intra-site spatial variation and social organization evident in the residential section of the site, especially as it relates to the segmentary organization of a prehistoric community. The cemetery is not analyzed but is described. Although the site was occupied into the following tradition, only the Banpo phase (containing the best-preserved strata) is covered.
