Description Flot sample 2 (1596), >4mm, 100% sorted, fully analyzed See sheet for 2966/67/68. This unit is mainly flot although there are a few fragments from dry sieve. It is fill-like with a small fragment size, but clean, unabraded and unpolished bone. There is a small amount of burning and a lot of digestion although not as much as in 2968. A few of the bones are slightly more weathered than usual, but on the whole the unit does not look mixed. The identifiable taxa include sheep/goat, dog/fox and a medium sized equid. Last Number = F29
