Drs. Bettinger and Morgan will present a symposium on current methods and theoretical approaches used in modeling prehistoric foraging behavior. Dr. Bettinger will present topics relating to the theme “Does Culture Matter?” Dr. Morgan will discuss topics relating to the theme “Stone Age Economics”.  Combined they will present models derived from behavioral and evolutionary ecology, culture transmission theory, hunter-gatherer case studies and data from the Western Loess Plateau in Gansu Province.  Each of the models in the symposium deliver alternative ways of predicting, modeling and testing hypotheses about the evolution of human foraging behavior using archaeological materials.
