Eastern Mimbres Archaeological Project faunal dataset

Summary

This dataset includes fauna from thirteen sites excavated by the Eastern Mimbres Archaeological Project, 1993-2002. Faunal analysis for most assemblages was by Karen Gust Schollmeyer and Tiffany C. Clark; portions of the assemblages from Las Animas Village, Ronnie, and Lee Hamlet were analyzed by Gretchen Kardaman and Heidi Lippmeier. Faunal data is primarily from A.D. 1000 to the early 1200s, with some additional data from earlier and later time periods. Users should reference this dataset and Schollmeyer's 2009 dissertation (also on tDAR), which contains additional information and analysis of the fauna from all sites except Las Animas Village.
