Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study Robert C. Elston is best known for:

  • Hunter-gatherer
  • Archaeology
  • Stone tool

His study ties his expertise on River valley together with the subject of Archaeology. He performs integrative study on Holocene and Pleistocene. Robert C. Elston applies his multidisciplinary studies on Pleistocene and Holocene in his research. His research on Genetics frequently links to adjacent areas such as Sequence (biology). His Sequence (biology) study frequently involves adjacent topics like Genetics. His Archaeology research extends to the thematically linked field of China. He undertakes interdisciplinary study in the fields of Blade (archaeology) and Upper Paleolithic through his works. Upper Paleolithic and Stone tool are two areas of study in which he engages in interdisciplinary work. In his works, Robert C. Elston performs multidisciplinary study on Stone tool and Lithic technology.

His most cited work include:

  • Thinking outside the box: A new perspective on diet breadth and sexual division of labor in the Prearchaic Great Basin (101 citations)
  • Spatial and temporal variety of prehistoric human settlement and its influencing factors in the upper Yellow River valley, Qinghai Province, China (88 citations)
  • Dating Shuidonggou and the Upper Palaeolithic blade industry in North China (81 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date

When carried out as part of a general Blade (archaeology) research project, his work on Archaeology is frequently linked to work in China, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. In his work, Robert C. Elston performs multidisciplinary research in Archaeology and Lithic technology. Holocene combines with fields such as Pleistocene and Radiocarbon dating in his work. While working in this field, he studies both Pleistocene and Holocene. His Glacial period research extends to the thematically linked field of Paleontology. He performs multidisciplinary study in Physical geography and Geomorphology in his work. He merges Geomorphology with Physical geography in his research. His research is interdisciplinary, bridging the disciplines of Paleontology and Structural basin. He merges many fields, such as Ecology and Agriculture, in his writings.

Robert C. Elston most often published in these fields:

  • Archaeology (82.35%)
  • Paleontology (52.94%)
  • Holocene (52.94%)
