Children as Formational Agents in the Archaeological Record: Some Ethnoarchaeological ObservationsSociety for American Archaeology 78th Annual Meeting (2013)
Is it possible to distinguish children's behavior in the archaeological record? What roles do children play as active site formational agents and what are the implications for archaeological investigation? Ethnoarchaeological descriptions of playing, technological behavior (hand-me-down, scavenging and re-use; skill acquisition), use of space, subsistence and social roles (gender differentiation; share-out) from neotropical forager-gardeners are used to develop a frame of reference and predictive statements about archaeological correlates of children's behavior.
