Introduction

The dataset reproduced here forms the basis of a paper that examines the relationship between language transmission and craft traditions amongst the Californian Indian, and focuses on the basketry traditions of the western United States (Jordan and Shennan 2003). Those wishing to use this resource should refer to the published work for a fuller understanding of the data. This data is derived from original research published elsewhere (Ellasser 1978).

This publication is an outcome from the How does the scale of spatial similarity in culture correlate with population density? project undertaken by the AHRC Centre for the Evolution of Cultural Diversity, part of the University of London, and funded by the AHRC. The aim of this project is to assess the extent to which linguistic and material cultural distributions are related to the scale of socio-political units, population density and to how the scale of interaction between peoples affects gene flow. This research has implications for a number of important archaeological issues, most notably the significance of archaeological cultures, including their role as indictors of areas of identity communication, the relationship between material culture and linguistic distributions, and the relationship between these material culture distributions and past gene flow patterns.
