Koster-N Horizon 8A-10B Macro Identified File (1981)
DATASET Sarah Neusius.

Data includes Faunal Analysis at Site. Site Description: The Koster site is a deeply stratified site located in the lower Illinois River valley containing cultural deposits that span most of the Holocene. This site has provided significant information about the Archaic period in the Midwest as well as human-environment interactions at this time. Due to excellent preservation Koster gives us a complex record of the technologies and food sources of its inhabitants over time. The Koster site is...

This file contains reconstructed indeterminate faunal identifications for the Koster Site Priority Horizons Horizons 8A-10B. These data were recorded by Sarah Neusius in her dissertation work and by Fred Hill and his assistants, but were not included in the Kos-N Priority Horizon file created by John Hewitt. They have been entered from notes, tallies and identification sheets available during 2015 and 2016 by Neusius and her students at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. Additional columns...


Koster-N Horizons 8A-10B Micro (2016)
DATASET Sarah Neusius.

This dataset provides faunal identification summaries for Horizons 8A, 8B,8D, 8E, 8F, 10A and 10B that were completed by S. Neusius when working on her dissertation. The original datasheets have not been relocated so this file has been created from the summaries in Neusius 1982 (see documents attached to this project). Because this is summary data the actual contexts within horizons are unknown, but except for the Indeterminate remains, Feature vs Midden contexts were separated. No flotation...
