By observing changes in ancient midden deposits, or modern waste, the ethnoarchaeologist is able to theorize about relationships between these material remains and the human behavior that produced them. The contributors to this book cover diverse societies and attempt to establish behavioral patterns from the study of what humans leave behind. The productive interaction between archaeology and ethnology demonstrates the effectiveness of ethnoarchaeological approaches in contexts from prehistoric to modern.
