Summary

Faunal data recovered from Kramer Mound Site, IN (12Sp7). Zooarchaeological identifications and analyses (including bone tools) were conducted by and under the direct supervision of Dr. Tanya M. Peres.

From the report (Bergman, C., Peres, T., & Schmidt, C. (2014). Scientific Recovery Investigations at the Kramer Mound (12Sp7): Prehistoric Artifact Assemblages, Faunal and Floral Remains, and Human Osteology. Indiana Archaeology, 9(1), 13-101.

"In fulfillment of the terms of an approved plan for scientific recovery #2010006 granted by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Division of Historic Preservation and Archaeology (DHPA), Christopher Bergman implemented scientific recovery investigations at the Kramer Mound (12Sp7), Spencer County, Indiana. The 2010 field investigations were precipitated by an inadvertent disturbance to the site consisting of soils excavated from a shallow basin which were incorporated into a retaining berm, as well as into a plowzone segregation backdirt pile (Bergman 2011). Based on calculations derived from the interior of the basin, it is suggested the ground disturbance involved approximately 213 m3 within a 16.5 meter x 17 meter x 0.76 meter area.

In general, the 12Sp7 data conform well with what is known of the late Middle and Late Archaic context of southern Indiana. The site‘s affinities with the French Lick phase are unequivocal, a fact confirmed by the AMS dates which fall well within the age range for this cultural expression. Beta Sample 284033 was collected from Stratum IIb, West 17, within a five gallon flotation sample, and yielded a calibrated radiocarbon age of 4220 B.C. (conventional radiocarbon age of 5300 + 40 B.P.). Beta Sample 284032 was collected from Stratum III, South 7, within a five gallon flotation sample and yielded a calibrated radiocarbon age of 3760 B.C. (conventional radiocarbon age of 4980 + 40 B.P.)."
