A Nested Hierarchy of Contexts: An Approach to Defining Significance for Lithic Scatters
- Author(s): Chartkoff, Joseph L
- et al.
In recent years, several authors have tried to grapple with problems in the study of lithic scatters (e.g., Talmage et al. 1977; Jackson et al. 1988; Hall and Jackson 1993). A great deal more, however, can be done to help advance this objective. This paper attempts to add to the discussion by suggesting some other approaches to the assessment of their significance that may benefit their research and management potential.
