General Note: Notes 5/9/14: Work 5/9-5/12/14 used spec numbers to add full provenience information, and rough context and date were added to the file previously in tDAR. There was an error on previous tDAR versions of this dataset, only corrected today, that made all spec numbers with fewer than 4 digits wrong. The observations themselves are unchanged, i.e. species counts and the like should be correct. I rediscovered that it appears that modification and burning columns are in the opposite order from the key (nbased on codes actually present). The Key from Homer Thiel says modification is not in the database but it evidently is. There are spec nos not in the spec log that which are almost certainly coding errors. 2255 is the only one with more than 1 bone. These could be corrected by going back to the original bags in the collection. 1192 2078 2171 2255 2282 3206 Spec 3514 and 3520 are legit spec numbers but from survey sites with animal bone. 11 Feb 2015 Revised dates based on Peeples and Schachner (2012) Journal of Archaeological Science article.
