Archaeology and the related fields of geography and anthropology have a long history of debate of environmental determinism going beyond discussing methodological issues (e.g., Arponen, Dorfler, Feeser, Grimm, Groß, Hinz, Knitter, Müller-Scheeßel, Ott, Ribeiro, Archaeol Dialogues 26(1):1–9, 2019). The environment’s influence on social processes has...
Inductive locational models have been used for decades to map the probability of past settlements and identify the preferred environmental conditions for habitation. In this study we apply inductive modelling to compare the spatial structure of the settlement systems of hunter-fisher-gatherer groups (Narva and Combed Ware Culture) and early agraria...

The behavioural ecological approach to anthropology states that the density and distribution of resources determines optimal patterns of resource use and also sets its constraints to grouping, mobility and settlement choice. Central place foraging (CPF) models have been used for analyzing foraging behaviours of hunter-gatherers and drawing a causal...
Fireplaces and burnt stones related to them are common features found at Stone Age settlement sites. Although information about them is present in archaeological reports and also available in publications, there has been no general research done regarding combustion features specifically. The purpose of this study was to fill the gap of relevant re...
