Description Flot smpl. #2, >4mm, 100% sorted, fully analyzed. No dry sieve This is a small unit of medium brown bone. About a quarter of the undiagnostic fragments are small pieces of rolled and abraded indeterminate fragments. The rest is fairly small long bone fragments. Some of the long bone fragments have sharp edges and some are softened. The diagnostics are generally small pieces of worn sheep-goat feet and teeth. The edges are smoothed and abraded, but not digested or gnawed. There are a few larger fragments and one human phalange. The unit does look like a dirty surface with perhaps a few pieces from a neighboring context. it is definitely distinct from the building fill and the construction material. Last Number = F25
