Site Structure and Organization in Beringian Archaeology
报告题目：Site Structure and Organization in Beringian Archaeology
报告人：Dr. Ben A. Potter
Dr. Ben A. Potter has worked in Alaskan archaeology since 1995, receiving his Ph.D. in 2005 at University of Alaska Fairbanks. He has extensive field and laboratory experience in both CRM and academic archaeology and has worked for federal agencies (1997), private industry (1998-2006), and UAF (2005-present). His geographic interests include Subarctic and Arctic regions, particulary Interior Alaska. His research interests include intersite variability, site structure and organization, with a research program focusing broadly on the relationships among site structure, settlement, economy and technology among high latitude prehistoric hunter-gatherers. He has considerable applied experience in field survey and excavation, spatial analysis, lithic and faunal analysis, intrasite and intersite modeling, and cultural resource management.

报告概况：I report on recent intrasite research in eastern Beringia focused on exploring site structure and organization. This encompasses excavations at the Mead, Upward Sun River, and Gerstle River sites, where multiple feature-related activity areas in several components add to our understanding of late Pleistocene to middle Holocene site structural and organizational variability. Lithic, faunal, and spatial analyses provide details on technological organization and subsistence economic variation. Recent theoretical approaches incorporating technological organization and behavioral ecology have provided ways to explore this early record.
