This thesis is a study of the archaeological concept of site. This study is done by first examining the term site as it appears in general archaeological literature, and in various State and Federal compliance archaeology guidelines. This thesis also looks at elements within the term site, such as artifact density and significance, as well as element outside of the concept, such as the National Register of Historic Places, and the State Historic Preservation Office, that have an impact on the concept of site. This thesis will also examine some of the issues inherent with these elements. Finally, this thesis looks at the impact of theory on the term site, and uses landscape archaeology to provide new ways of thinking about the term site.
