Sedimentele arheologice sunt rezultatul acţiunii conjugate a proceselor naturale şi antropice şi pot fi definite ca un ansamblu de particule minerale şi organice integrate în depozitele arheologice ce pot fi produse sau nu de către om şi pot fi transformate ulterior acumulării lor (Courty și Miskovski, 1987). Astfel, unitățile sedimentare din cadru...
