|Description||Flot sample 2 (1364), >4 mm, 100% sorted, only diagnostics. This is a medium-sized unit of generally very light brown bones. Between 1/3 and 1/2 of the assemblage are 03 long bone fragments. Vertebrae and ribs are fairly well represented. The identifiable limb bone ends are more fragmented than usual on the west mound, some of which is due to carnivore ravaging, but primarily seems to be heavier processing than in some of the other units. There are very few skull bones and quite a few foot bones. Apart from one large canid ulna and a cervid metacarpal all the bones are sheep/goat. The cervid is either a very robust Capreolus or a fallow deer - I will look at size ranges. All but 2 or 3 pieces of scrap are 03 size. The material appears to be highly processed post consumption material. The surface condition of the bones is uniformly good and suggests that the material has similar origin and history. The flot sample appears relatively dense with about 10% burning. There is only a small amount of digestion and a generally uniform condition. Edges are only slightly abraded. Last Number = 145|
