Abstract

Abstract Ethnoarchaeological research in two cities in Rajasthan, India, investigated relationships between social organization and ceramic distribution. Using a ranking system to evaluate kinship distance and digitized data on the locations of ceramics, potters, and vendors, this paper considers the relative priority of spatial and social propinquity. In transporting goods, interaction with distantly related kin sometimes overrides distance minimizing tendencies.
