° Sampling in Survey and Excavation Complete survey or excavation: no sampling=excavate entire site. Site is gone. Partial survey or excavation: sampling ° Sampling in Regional Survey Is it a good way to find sites? Not a good technique because it didn’t work here. Has been surveyed completely over the years. Regional survey in Teotihuacan Valley Valley divided into 7 areas: in each area took a 20% random sample and didn’t find Teotihuacan using this sample. This sampling doesn’t work. Found sites of various sizes in the proportion they existed. 20% random sample No Teotihuacan! ° Value of Sampling They did find sites of various sizes in the proportion they existed. ° Random sampling Is not a discovery technique Is not the best way to find sitesyou walk up to someone and ask them if they have found things on their farms, etc. Is the best way to get a representative sample without total coverage ° Sampling Universe Define the area to be surveyed or excavated (define sampling universe)who is your sample? The people of the United States=area to be surveyed or excavated. Dry land area of Wild Cane Cay.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
