Notes: Description: In <i>The Interpretation of Archaeological Spatial Patterning</i>, papers clearly identify important trends in archaeological research that cover the distribution of artifacts and other objects at prehistoric sites. Focusing on ethnoarchaeological and experimental research, contributors examine the convergence of archaeological and actualistic studies for the purpose of understanding intrasite spatial patterns, emphasizing the significant accomplishments achieved by recent actualistic studies on formation in this area of research. Other papers detail the strengths and weaknesses of current interpretations of spatial patterns at particular archaeological sites and the extent to which these investigations have benefited from actual research. Papers presented at a symposium organized at the 52nd Annual Meeting of the Society for American Archaeology held in May 1987 in Toronto, Ont.
