Poster #34: JAMIE GOETZ – Experimental Archaeology: Modeling the Costs of Groundstone tool-use for Maize Consumption in Range Creek Canyon, Utah

<< Return to the Main Page

Faculty mentor: Shannon Boomgarden

This experiment adds to the data set exploring how costly it was it to be a Fremont farmer in Range Creek Canyon, UT, and why they made the decisions they made? This research aids in understanding this question by gathering quantitative data (kcals/hour) on the cost of processing maize for consumption. In addition to the quantitative data, participants in actualistic experiments provide many observations about the process of grinding maize that ethnographic/archaeological records cannot provide.
