Bone and Metal Summary

Bone Summary:

Given the small area of excavation, bone was highly concentrated in CA-36 as well.  All appears to be animal bone and only one shows possible indications of butchering.  This bone will be stored in the CA-36 1993 Representative Pottery Box.

Metal Summary:

Like all other material from CA-36, metal finds were located within the medium brown soil.  Objects tended to preserve a good state of completeness (for example 7-7 #1 , a nearly complete navicella fibula).  Two examples of iron nails (one complete and one missing the head) were recovered.  6-27 #1, an unusual object with finished edges and perforations, combined both bronze and iron (iron seemed to have been used to rivet a bronze sheet together).  Other than the iron nails and 6-27 #1, all other metals from CA-36 were bronze.
