dc.description.abstractBasketmaker II open sites on Cedar Mesa, Utah are differentiated through patterning in the spatial distributions of artifacts and features. The sites are known from surficial evidence only. Source data includes maps and collections of all surface artifacts. Evidence for site classification is taken from field notes, results of statistical techniques which provide average pattern size of groupings of individual artifact classes in each site, and maps of the spatial distribution of the artifacts in the sites. Similarities between sites are found not to be dependent on similarities in site size. Further, sites which may be classed as pithouse habitations all appear to have a regular distributional structure of features in relation to the total artifact distribution.Notes on statistical techniques used in analysis, particularly dimensional analysis of variance, are included. These notes are limited to comments relevant to completion of this work or necessary to a reading of the thesis.en_US
