dc.description.abstractTwo deeply buried, well-stratified, and well-dated components dating to the Early Holocene period were excavated at the Richard Beene site (41BX831) in Bexar County, Texas. This thesis utilizes both qualitative (interpretation of maps) and quantitative (unconstrained clustering) spatial analysis techniques to identify site structure and assess post-depositional disturbance by analyzing patterns among artifact categories, selected artifacts, and features from these components. Results of spatial analysis are compared to expectations of the archaeological record based on previous research. Each component revealed a distinct pattern. The Lower Medina component (ca. 6900 B.P.) is well preserved and spatial analysis showed clear distinctions between domestic and peripheral zones. The Upper Perez component (8800 B.P.) is a fluvial lag deposit of displaced artifacts and fire-cracked rock features. Results of spatial analysis confirmed that most, if not all, of this component is disturbed, revealing no site structure.en
