|Description||A small unit of light brown bone. About half of the bones are diagnostic sheep/goat and about half are long bone fragments with a small amount of vertebra. The material is only slightly mixed, with sharp edges and little rolling or abrasion. There is a very small amount of low temperature burning. It is similar to house fill, perhaps a bit denser than other fills, but similar composition. There are several fragments of a young mandible that was probably complete in the ground. Flot sample 2 (5701) >4mm, 100% sorted. The flotation sample is almost all light brown bone, many of the smaller pieces are recent breaks. It is about 3% low temperature burning with a small number of unidentifiable flot frags, many fresh, but some old. The diagnositc bones are all sheep feet and teeth. It is definite fill, which has been rapidly buried, it is not material that has been on or near a surface and it does not look redeposited. 4 microfauna bones (2 amphibian), and one fish bone were pulled from the flotation sample. One bird phalanx was recorded and sent for further identification. There was also one human deciduous molar bud. Last Number=F67|
