Abstract

A major advantage offered by a stratified, multicomponent site is that it allows investigations of changes through time in behavior at the locality and, to some degree, in the wider region. In order to make inferences about behavioral changes , however , other sources of variation in the archaeological record must be controlled. As samples of prehistoric activities, the different assemblages from Henauhof Nordwest are not strictly comparable. Three factors affecting the formation and recovery of these assemblages—preservation, mode of deposition, and sample size—have imposed certain limits and patterns on these assemblages and therefore have caused specific types of variation among them .
