Description Flot #2, >4mm, 100% sorted, fully analyzed A small unit of medium brown bone. Most of the unit is small fragments of 03 long bone fragments. There is quite a bit of staining, but very little burning. There is no digestion or gnawing. Some of the smaller fragments are rolled and abraded, but much of the assemblage is quite sharp. The diagnostics are sheep/goat feet and teeth and one large human metacarpal. The assemblage is not quite like fill, but not clearly a surface. One bird bone was pulled for analysis. A fragment of a bone point handle was sent to worked bone. One human bone was sent to the human bone lab. Last Number = F45
