The study of prehistoric trade has imposed itself upon archaeology as an issue due to a need to expound origins and meanings of various artifacts that were the object of exchange and trade. This was particularly apparent with raw materials that were not in the natural vicinity of the spot of discovery, or with artifacts the style or cultural affiliation of which pointed to origins of a different archaeological context from the one they were discovered in. The need to proffer a clearer definition of the character of prehistoric trade itself induced archaeologists to turn to anthropological sources which bespeak of this issue.
