- Author(s): Smith, Craig S

- et al.
This article first summarizes some information concerning the site and the recovered remains, including the habitation features. The site structure of the household activity areas is then explored by examining the distribution of the recovered remains. The site structure discussion relies on comparisons with the results of ethnoarchaeological studies of the use of space by modern hunter-gatherers and analogies based on ethnohistoric and ethnographic sources. The remaining sections explore the season of site occupation and the settlement organization, including mobility, predation, and technology of the prehistoric inhabitants of Dry Susie Creek.
