Bone Summary

Bone was recovered throughout the trench in South Flank.  The largest quantity, over half, of bone was recovered from the destruction stratum overlaying the floor of the orientalizing structure.  In general, the bone from South Flank was highly fragmentary.  Some fragments showed signs of burning as well.  The bone consisted of fragments from various animals: bird, sheep/goat, and wild boar.  It is interesting to note that no pieces of worked or cut bone were discovered.  Also, no antler or ivory was recovered.  This lack of worked bone/antler/ivory is a point of great contrast with the other orientalizing structures on Piano del Tesoro and this structure.
