How to use "Middens" in context?

Most people are familiar with middens as the piles of garbagefilled sedimentary rock left behind by human civilizations. But what many people don't realize is that middens are a vital aspect of the natural environment and can be found all over the world.

Middens are the result of the deposition of sediments such as sand, clay, and gravel. These particles are accumulated by the action of rain, currents, and waterfalls. Once these materials reach a certain size, they are forced out of the water and onto land.

Middens are a valuable resource for environmental researchers.
