This thesis deals with intrasite spatial analysis: the analysis of spatial patterns on site level. My main concern has been to develop a simple method for analysing Stone Age sites of a special type: those characterised by the presence of a hearth closely associated in space with an artefact scatter. Though this type of site is quite common, especially in the Upper Palaeolithic, other types do exist. The method introduced in this thesis, the ring and sector method, will generally be inappropriate in cases where the global "spatial organisation" of a site is not defined by a central hearth (however, see Ch. V for an application to another situation). Being feature-oriented, the ring and sector method is restricted in its range of applications ... Zie: Introduction
