This study discusses the use of analogy in archaeology. It examines the practices of modern goat herders in the southern Andes as a means of understanding ancient human and animal behavior at the prehistoric site of Asana. It consolidates and synthesizes 20 years of ethnoarchaeological research in pastoral societies and provides guidelines for interpreting site occupation span and raw material use in pastoral sites.
