Bone Summary

Locus 1

No bone found.

Locus 2

No bone found

Locus 3

No bone found.

Locus 4

8 pieces of bone were found.  They were all small bits and none were worked or cut.  Some possibly show signs of butchery, but really they are too small to tell.  Some teeth included.

Locus 5

4 pieces of bone were found.  Circumstances are the same as in locus 4.  Quite small and fragmentary to get any information.

Locus 6

30 Pieces of bone were found.  Some now larger and more formidable than earlier loci, but stil none worked or cut.  Few definitely show butcher marks, but many also just broken.

Locus 7

152 Pieces of bone were found.  Many now show butcher marks.  A fair amount of larger pieces included.  There are atleast 5 animal teeth, and 1 bores tusk.  The number of bone pieces and the number with butcher marks shows a higher level of consumption compared to earlier layers.

Locus 7 also had 2 catalogued pieces of antler.  One large piece of cut and worked antler (20030122 ) (p. 81, find #3, 7/28) was cut on both ends, left round, but planed flat the length of one side and begun to be planed on the other, but abandoned half way.

A second piece (20030124) (p. 81, find #2, 7/28) was cut on both ends, but the surface was not worked.  Both these finds are probably related to the proximity of the workshop.

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.
