Abstract

We present the methodology of computer modeling of an archaeological excavation. The method allows the study of archaeological formation, modification and transformation processes. Our main goal has been to build a computer model of midden-site formation processes. The main purpose of these models is converting excavation data to visual elements (lines, surfaces, and solids) which can be used as a representation of that data. Furthermore, geostatistics and other quantitative spatial analysis methods are also discussed to characterize the processes having generated the spatial distribution of archaeological data. © 2009 by the Board of Regents of the University of Wisconsin System.
