Locus 3, associated with the Archaic occupation, contained the most bone fragments, followed by Locus 6 and Locus 5, which are strata associated with the Orientalizing Period.  Locus 6 contained three of the largest bone fragments, all of which appear to be joints.  A tusk, possible from a boar, was also pulled from Locus 6.

From Locus 3, bone fragments from the area of the mouth, inclusing teeth and jawbone fragments, were recovered.

In Locus 3 also several joints, possible knuckles, were recovered.

None of the bones from any Locus appears to have been worked or have any signs of butchering that are obvious.  A few striations on a bone in Locus 3 may be natural.

Editorial Note

Open Context editors work with data contributors to annotate datasets to shared vocabularies, ontologies, and other standards using 'Linked Open Data' (LOD) methods.

The annotations presented above approximate some of the meaning in this contributed data record to concepts defined in shared standards. These annotations are provided to help make datasets easier to understand and use with other datasets.
