A Trend-Surface Analysis of Central Plains Radiocarbon Dates

Published online by Cambridge University Press:  20 January 2017

Abstract

For the past several decades, students of the Central Plains tradition have postulated a south-to-north trend of movement by the bearers of this tradition. Such a pattern should be detectable by means of a trend-surface analysis of the available radiocarbon dates. This paper reports such an analysis. The trend is found to be largely supported by the chronological evidence.
