Table Information: Primary Data

This table contains the primary zooarchaeological data (everything except weight).

Column Name Data Type Type Category Coding Sheet Ontology Search
COMMENTS Comments may relate to modification types, see the "Modifications: Arizona State Museum Faunal Coding Key"
VARCHAR  Uncoded Value Lookup : Notes none none true
MARKS The type of butchery or other culturally-made marks on the specimen. More information about these marks is sometimes included in the Comments column.
BIGINT  Coded Value Fauna : Cultural Modification Modifications: Arizona State Museum Faunal Coding Key Fauna Butchering Ontology true
BURN Presence of burning. 0 = unburned; 1 = burned; 2 = calcined
BIGINT  Coded Value Fauna : Burning Burning: Arizona State Museum Faunal Coding Key Fauna Burning Intensity Ontology true
FUS The presence and extent of fusion on the bone.
BIGINT  Coded Value Fauna : Fusion Fusion: Arizona State Museum Faunal Coding Key Fauna Fusion Ontology true
SIDE Side Code: 0 = unknown or n/a; 1 = left; 2 = right
BIGINT  Coded Value Fauna : Age Symmetry: Arizona State Museum Faunal Coding Key Fauna Side Ontology true
NISP The Number of Identified Specimens (NISP), or bone count, is determined for every taxonomic identification. Specimens that cross-mend with other specimens in the same minimum analytical unit (Catalog Number) are counted as single specimens. No attempt was made to cross-mend specimens from separate Catalog Numbers.

Taxon Latin Taxon name

ELEM BIGINT  Coded Value Fauna : Element Element: Arizona State Museum Faunal Coding Key Fauna Element Ontology true
PRTN The portion of the element recovered.

FS The minimum analytical unit. Each FS number refers to all specimens found within the same context (same horizontal and vertical provenience). The catalog number does the same thing
VARCHAR  Uncoded Value Provenience and Context : Identifier none none true
Vertical VARCHAR  Uncoded Value Provenience and Context : Vertical Position none none true
Feature # VARCHAR  Uncoded Value Provenience and Context : Feature ID/Number none none true

Table Information: Weights

All weights were collected by taking all specimens belonging to a specific taxon identification within a minimal analytical unit (Catalog or FS number) and weighing them together. Thus, while different elements or portions are separated into different lines in the primary dataset, they are combined here for the weight measurement. ​
