Koster-N Horizon 11 Macro

Part of the Koster Site, IL (11GE4) project

Creator(s): Sarah Neusius

Year: 2016

Summary

This dataset is a combination of Horizon Eleven faunal identifications made by Sarah Neusius, Andrea Boon and Frederick Hill. It was created by Sarah Neusius and her students in late 2015 and early 2016 and modified for use by the EAFWG. The original datasets from which this is created are also stored in tDAR.

Notes

General Note: The Koster faunal databases loaded in tDAR were identified by several zooarchaeologists. Frederick C. Hill and his assistants identified much of the early material collected in test units dug in 1969 as well as materials from the excavation of Horizons 1-6. Hill's 1975 dissertation (see reference list associated with this project) is a primary source for this material. Sarah W. Neusius identified faunal remains from Horizons 8-10B as well as a small sample of materials from Horizon 11. Her 1982 dissertation as well as a 1986 article (see references) are the primary sources for this material. John Hewitt created the faunal file for Horizons 8-10B identifications in conjunction with his own 1982 dissertation (see references) Andrea L. Boon completed a MA thesis on a large sample of materials from Horizon 11 and reported on this research in her 2011 thesis (see references).

Source Collections

The Koster fauna remains are held by the Illinois State Museum, although some materials may remain with the Center for American Archaeology in Kampsville, IL.
