  Behavioral Archaeology:Some Clarifications Minimize

Michael Brian Schiffer

Abstract


In their comment on Schiffer (1996), Broughton and O'Connell perpetuate several common misconceptions about behavioral archaeology. This brief reply clarifies the character and goals of behavioral archaeology and indicates that this vigorous program is now beginning to produce "social" theory beyond the explanation of variability in artifact designs.
