Foley (1981a,b) has noted that this is a typical characteristic of the archaeological record of small-scale, mobile societies and argued that the regional structure of this record is described most appropriately in terms of variable artefact density across the landscape.
Hence it is possible that this strategy provides a more accurate indication of subsurface, rather than surface, artefact densities.
The suspect who, by that time had sold the artefact
, was arrested.
We claim that technical artefacts have a dual nature: the function of a technical artefact is grounded on the one hand in its physical structure and on the other hand in a context of intentional human action (see also Kroes, 2002).
According to Simon the environment of an artefact is very important because it moulds the artefact.
Clearly, in this context it is necessary to have an accurate picture of the distribution of backed artefact production through time and space.
This article explores sample-size effect as a factor in the archaeological patterning of Holocene artefact assemblages in Australia.
The most important feature of this definition, here torn out of its context, is that it takes the concept of an artefact to be a social concept.
An artwork, he argues, is an artefact whose unsubordinated intention is intended to be conceived of as an RIF intention.
The image of a rapid Capertian/Bondaian transition at Capertee 3 played a central role in debates about the antiquity of early and late backed artefacts, and variation in backed artefact production rates through time.
However, variation in backed artefact production between regions and through time is poorly defined.
Mayahi said, But there are still details that need to be worked out, and the artefacts must all be registered in an electronic archive at Cornell University in the state of New York before they are returned.
Both the parties have agreed not to go into details about how the artefacts came to be in the United States, he added.
The statement said that the Tourist and Antiques Police was tipped off about a Palestinian national from occupied East Jerusalem who was moving hundreds of rare artefacts from the city of Bethlehem to smuggle them abroad.
A huge Palestinian police force moved to the scene and arrested the suspect and seized the artefacts before they left the Palestinian territories.
