2 Although Wallerstein initially questioned the applicability of a world-systems approach to precapitalist societies, it has proved to be a useful heuristic tool for analyzing the archaeological record. 3 Several concepts are crucial to understanding world-systems theory. The terms core and periphery are well known from the fields of history and geography. In this approach, the economy of peripheral areas (periphery) is closely connected to the exploitative policies of the economic core. Two additional components are often included in world-systems analyses: the semiperiphery (which serves a mediating role between core and periphery) and the external zone (or areas external to the system).
