Abstract This research focuses on pit formation processes and ceramic technology at Hahn’s Field (33HA10), a multicomponent site located in the lower Little Miami River Valley of Hamilton County, Ohio. This site was selected because of the ubiquity of pit features and ceramics, long occupation span, and evidence of discard processes.
