Pueblo Blanco faunal data

Part of the Pueblo Blanco Archaeological project

Creator(s): Tiffany Clark

Year: 2000


Excavations at Pueblo Blanco by Arizona State University resulted in the recovery of a large faunal assemblage containing a total of 64,733 specimens (Table 2). Approximately 32 percent of the assemblage, or 20,621 specimens, are considered identifiable. In this analysis, mammalian, avian, and reptilian fauna are classified as “identifiable” if the specimen can be classified to an order. Given the highly fragmented nature of fish bone, these remains are only identified to the class level.
