Total bone: 667 pieces

T-48 yielded relatively little bone, especially when compared with the amount of tile and ceramics recovered. All of the bone found in T-48 was animal bone, the vast majority being sheep bones; additionally, some cinghiale bones may have been found.

Certain loci contained no or hardly any bone; very small quantities of bone were found in Loci 1 , 3 , 4 , 6 and 9 . Most of the bone recovered from T-48 were concentrated in two loci: Loci 8 and 10.

Loci 8 and 10 produced the majority of the bone pieces found in T-48 this season. Locus 8 by far contained the most bone, with 269 pieces (40.33%) having been found. Although a large quantity of bone was found in Locus 8 , only three pieces of bone showed any evidence of working or butchering; the remaining pieces of bone did not preserve any cut marks.

A large quantity of bone was also recovered from Locus 10 , in which 174 pieces (26.09%) of bone were found. The majority of the bone found in Locus 10 was unworked, however nine bone fragments were clearly worked. Such fragments include a piece of bone cut to resemble a plaque with a guilloche border ( 20070248

), a burnished piece of bone with an incised checkerboard pattern ( 20070225

), a hemispherical piece of burnished bone ( 20070175

), a bone fragment with incised chevrons ( 20070210

), an incised fragment of burnished bone ( 20070328

), a bone bead ( 20070233

), a ring of burnt bone with incised concentric rings ( 20070177

), and an incised bone fragment ( 20070332

). Although notable examples of worked bone were found in Locus 10 , no identifiably butchered bone fragments were recovered from this stratum.

Editorial Note

Open Context editors work with data contributors to annotate datasets to shared vocabularies, ontologies, and other standards using 'Linked Open Data' (LOD) methods.

The annotations presented above approximate some of the meaning in this contributed data record to concepts defined in shared standards. These annotations are provided to help make datasets easier to understand and use with other datasets.
