Abstract: An integral part of the New Archeology is a method of dealing with lithic variabilities based on a behavioral model and the use of mathematical techniques for the analysis of variance. To test some of the underlying assumptions of this paradigm a factor analysis was performed on published data for several Russian Mousterian sites. Seven factors were produced, and their content was interpreted as indicating two different types of activity: base camp killing and butchering and work camp transient food preparation.
