The deposit is fairly mixed despite its size including carbonized bone, small fragments with some trample and also recently broken larger pieces. There is almost no digestion. Overall it is not reworked by either dogs or trampling/rolling although there may be some of such material mixed in. it is mainly fill with perhaps a bit of activity in the area. Identifiables are primarily sheep/goat with one small canid metapodial and one cattle sesamoid. The flot sample matches the dry sieve although obviously smaller.
