Example text

Binford described a characteristic pattern of ‘drop and toss zones’ around outdoor hearths. The drop zone was located in the site half where people sat and worked most of the time, to windward of the hearth. The presence or absence of toss zones can be investigated relatively easily with the ring and sector method. For example, the ‘centrifugal effect’, the tendency of larger artefacts to end up farther from the hearth than small items, can be demonstrated by comparing the ring diagrams of small artefacts with those of large ones.
