Bone Summary


Loci 1-2, 3+5 and wall defining

From this area 61 bone fragments were recovered, mostly from small animals, judging from their appearance.  Although bone recovery here was frequent, it ultimately does not reveal much as it was from the disturbed stratum.

Loci 4, 6-10

This area yielded 93 fragments of bone, mostly from Locus 4, which produced 51 fragments.  However, the same problem lies with Locus 4 as the previous discussed loci.  Locus 6 produced 12 fragments, and 7+8 produced 3 and 8 respectively.  Therefore, bone density is lower here.  The floor level of Locus 9 produced 16 fragments, which is still low in comparison.  And Locus 10 produced only 3.  Again, the bones were most likely from smaller animals, and had no evidence of burning or other distinguishing features.

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.
