UNDERSTANDING SITE SPATIAL AND TEMPORAL COMPONENTS USING LITHIC TOOL ANALYSIS AT DHRP-52

DhRp-52 is a 5,000 year old village site located within traditional Katzie Territory. My research used lithic tools to help delineate temporal and spatial components within the site’s deposits. This approach was useful at detecting differences in tool assemblage composition between three temporal components and between the spatial components in the latest occupation. Interestingly, differences in tool assemblage composition between the spatial components in the middle occupation could not be detected through tool sub-assemblage composition. These findings and their implications will be discussed during this presentation.
