Usage Examples English
  • A shell midden or shell mound is an archaeological feature consisting mainly of mollusk shells. The Danish term "køkkenmøddinger" (plural) was first used by Japetus Steenstrup to describe shell heaps and continues to be used by some researchers. A midden, by definition, contains the debris of human activity, and should not be confused with wind- or tide-created beach mounds. Some shell middens are processing remains: areas where aquatic resources were processed directly after harvest and prior to use or storage in a distant location.
