Summary

The Lauth Data Recovery Faunal (FAUNAL) Data sheet contains data on the faunal remains recovered during SSI's additional recovery work in Unit 15 of Pueblo Grande. The data set lists the provenience designation (PD) and Field Specimen (FS) number of the remains (Note that it is essential that the PD and FS remain associated to identify a given faunal specimen). If the specimen was recovered from an identified feature, the data set also provides the feature number and feature type. The data sheet then documents a specimen's species designation, estimated age and sex, the element type and number, element side, other anatomical data, condition, and any identified modifications.

Column Name Data Type Type Category Coding Sheet Ontology
SITE The ASM number of the site under investigation.
VARCHAR  Uncoded Value Provenience and Context : Site none none
PROJECT The SSI project number during which the faunal specimen was collected.
VARCHAR  Uncoded Value Provenience and Context : Project none none
PD The Provenience Designation (PD) number is an area that has been examined by archaeological researchers during a given project. PD numbers are assigned to all examined areas, even when no artifacts were collected. For each site, PD numbers run from 1 to n.
BIGINT  Uncoded Value Provenience and Context : Horizontal Location none none
FS The field specimen number assigned to an artifact type from a given PD unit. Note that one FS # is assigned to multiple artifacts of the same type from a single PD unit. In the field, specimen numbers were assigned to bags of like artifacts from the same PD. When artifacts were collected, a specimen number was assigned to a bag that contained particular artifact types from a PD unit. Thus, a separate FS # was assigned to the ceramics, lithics, groundstone, etc that were recovered from a PD. Specimen numbers run from 1 to n for each PD unit. Thus, to identify a specific specimen, an analyst must use a combination of the PD No and the FS No.
BIGINT  Uncoded Value Provenience and Context none none
ARTIFACT_TYPE The type of artifact that the faunal represents
BIGINT  Coded Value Fauna : Bone Artifact Form Soil Systems, Inc. Artifact Type Coding Sheet none
FEATURE_NUMBER The number of a feature identified and documented in a given PD unit. At each site, feature numbers were assigned from 1 to n. Subfeature numbers include the associated feature number followed by a decimal; subfeature numbers begin at .01 for each feature. For example, the second subfeature excavated in Feature 15 is coded as 15.02.
BIGINT  Uncoded Value Provenience and Context : Feature ID/Number none none

SIDE The side (e.g., left, right) of the bone element. Please refer to Soil Systems, Inc. Faunal Bone Side Coding Sheet for a list of siding codes.
VARCHAR  Coded Value Fauna : Side Soil Systems, Inc. Faunal Bone Side Coding Sheet none
CONDITION BIGINT  Coded Value Fauna : Completeness Soil Systems, Inc. Faunal Remains Condition (Completeness) Coding Sheet none
AGE The estimated age at death of the animal from which the faunal specimen came. Note that the analyst may record one of two types of age categories: 1) traditional age references (juvenile, adult, etc), or 2) epiphyseal fusion patterns (for long bone portions). Please refer to Soil Systems, Inc. Fauna Age Coding Sheet for a complete list of available age categories.

Notes

General Note: Soil Systems analysts stored all provenience and artifact data for post-Hohokam Expressway Pueblo Grande projects in a relational database program called Advanced Revelations (AREV). The provenience and artifact data tables were standardized within this database. Thus, the FAUNA data tables from this project and other Pueblo Grande projects were created in a table named FAUNA_DATA, and saved in this table. The data sheet presented here has been extracted from the FAUNA_DATA table in SSI's AREV database.

General Note: The FAUNA data from this project should be directly compatible with the FAUNA data from all other Soil Systems, Inc. Pueblo Grande projects, because the data were created in a standardized format (see above). Users can easily integrate this FAUNA data with the data from other SSI projects.

General Note: Please note that SSI recorded the Pueblo Grande number as AZ U:9:7(ASM), which is the designation for a portion of Pueblo Grande. The correct number for the site as a whole is AZ U:9:1(ASM).
