  Quantifying Shell: Comments on Mason, Peterson, and Tiffany Minimize

Cheryl Claassen


Mason et al. recently revived a debate as to the suitability of shell weights or shell MNI, with several interesting points. Among the points they raised are two with which I take exception: that MNI is always better than weight, and that relative percentages are the analytical tool of choice.


Hace un año Mason et al. restablecieron la discusión sobre el uso del peso de conchas o del MNI. Mi desacuerdo es en dos printos: que MNI es siempre mejor que peso y que por centajes relativos son la herramienta preferida.
