Initially, the assessment polarized into two separate views: the European outlook that bivalves were a minor dietary component for midden dwelling humans, and the American and New Zealand viewpoint that bivalves were a major food source for prehistoric coastal people (Bailey 1975; Jerardino 1995). While some problems with estimating the human diet seem to have abated (Claassen 1998), sediment layer compression and the assumption of a constant deposition of shell midden matrix are still difficult issues that influence temporal scaling (Jerardino 1995).
