Abstract

Brian Hayden argues that our analysis of Keatley Creek stratigraphy and dates offers inaccurate conclusions. Although our data demonstrate that the village appeared late and was somewhat unstable, Hayden continues to support a model of early emergence and high stability. Hayden offers no new data to support his position. Consequently, we argue that there is no reason to reject our revised view.

Résumé

Résumé

Brian Hayden arguye que las conclusiones de nuestro análisis de la estratigrafía y fechamiento del sitio Keatley Creek, están equivocadas. Aunque nuestros datos demuestran que la aldea apareció tarde y fue algo inestable, Hayden continúa apoyando un modelo de surgimiento temprano y estabilidad plena. Hayden no ofrece nuevos datos para apoyar a su posición. Por lo tanto, mantenemos que no se debe rechazar a nuestra explicación revisada.
