Dust Cave, Alabama Archaic faunal dataset
Early and Middle Archaic faunal data from Dust Cave Alabama, Renee B. Walker dissertation (University of Tennessee, 1998).
Archaic deposits from Dust Cave date between and 5,200 years ago with four distinct Archaic occupations. These include the Early Side-Notched and Kirk Stemmed components (Early Archaic), and the Eva/Morrow Mountain component and Seven Mile Island phase (Middle Archaic). The preservation, and subsequent recovery, of faunal material at the site is exceptional, with an abundance of small fish and mammals, birds, and amphibians. Because of the antiquity, integrity, and preservation of the deposits at the site, a zooarchaeological analysis of the faunal remains from Dust Cave offers unique insights into prehistoric human subsistence strategies.
