Abstract

Identifying the movement of archaeological materials across the landscape at given points in time is a powerful tool for understanding the socioeconomic processes of the past. The aim of this chapter is, first, to provide a background for identifying the physical distribution of archaeological materials and, second, to outline some of the more powerful analytical techniques used by archaeologists to identify such movements of materials.
