This paper is an analysis of site structure as it applies to social and behavioral organization within Paleolithic hunter-gather camp sites. A complete understanding of site structure requires the examination of high-definition sites that are very well preserved in terms of their spatial integrity. Magdalenian open-air sites within the Paris basin are some of best-preserved Paleolithic sites, due to particular depositional processes present at the sites, the light flooding of nearby rivers and gentle accumulation of silts and sand. The spatial structures of Magdalenian sites within the Paris basin are comparable to the spatial structures of many other Paleolithic sites and certain types of ethnographic huntergatherer sites. Verberie is one of the best examples of a high-definition site within the Paris Basin and therefore well suited for a spatial examination of site structure.
