Lateral Displacement of Artifacts Due to Plowing

Published online by Cambridge University Press:  20 January 2017

Abstract

Excavations at the Airport site, Springfield, Illinois, recently provided a rare opportunity to examine lateral displacement that has occurred due to plowing. Measurements of relative displacement of sections of reconstructed bifaces are given. These measurements suggest that plow drag may not be as great as is sometimes supposed.
