Whereas operating at Mirador in the course of the 1965
season (Agrinier 1970), I made a brief in¬
vestigation of the within sight web site of Miramar, ex¬
ploring the floor and making 5 attempt pits.
My goal was once to make a initial eval¬

The destinations for the try pits have been selected
for their capability ceramic stratigraphy, with
an goal to keep away from different cultural positive aspects,
such as masonry partitions, caches, and burials.
However, in the case of Pit 2, my intentions
were diverted; the mass burial I encountered
there occupied me for so much of the brief sea¬
son, from the heart of may perhaps to the first days
of June, 1965. different brief explorations I
made in 1973 and 1974 further a few extra

This fanciful, dummy creature, who has been very tenacious of existence in popular and semi-popular economic literature, and whose shadow haunts even the minds of competent anthropologists, blighting their outlook with a pre-conceived idea, is an imaginary, primitive man, or savage, prompted in all his actions by a rationalistic conception of self-interest, and achieving his aims directly and with the minimum of effort. Even one well established instance should show how preposterous is this assumption that man, and especially man on a low level of culture, should be actuated by pure economic motives of enlightened self-interest.

Thus, McCollum and Davis (1915:185) dismantled the notion that, in the living world, energy alone could promote growth when they wrote that: “…all of which make it evident that purified proteins, fats having the growth-promoting property, and salt mixtures of appropriate composition, cannot adequately supplement polished rice so as to produce a diet which will support growth”. In a case of bitter irony, then, McCollum and Davis (1915:192) argued that increasing attention to the non-energy producing accessory substances would lead to significant economic benefits through better health and nutrition.
