Albert Porter Pueblo Fauna

Summary

Faunal data from Albert Porter Pueblo, excavated by Crow Canyon Archaeological Center 2001-2004. Faunal analysis was by Shaw Badenhorst and Jonathan C. Driver in 2008, using methodology described in the CCAC Manual for the Description of Vertebrate Remains. Context information was integrated by Karen G. Schollmeyer in 2011 using data supplied by CCAC. Kyle Bocinsky refactored the bone modification data in 2018. Site dates are AD 1020-1280, fauna is from the period AD 1060-1280. Users should reference both this dataset and Badenhort's 2008 dissertation (available on tDAR), which has additional information on the faunal assemblage. Additional information on Albert Porter Pueblo is available on the web at http://www.crowcanyon.org/publications/albert_porter_pueblo.asp.

Burning This is a duplication of data contained in the three "Modification" columns that pertain to burning. Crow Canyon's Modification coding sheet defines three burning classes: B — Burnt Black; L — Localised burning; and W — Burnt white, grey, or blue/grey. In cases where more than one burning code is present, the more specific categories (B and W) were privileged, and between those the one that appeared "first" (i.e., in the Modification1 column) was kept.
VARCHAR  Coded Value Fauna : Burning Modification coding sheet for Crow Canyon Archaeological Center fauna through 2008 (Burning) Fauna Burning Intensity Ontology
Gnawing This is a duplication of data contained in the three "Modification" columns that pertain to gnawing. Crow Canyon's Modification coding sheet defines two gnawing classes: C — Carnivore damage; and R — Rodent gnawing. In cases where more than one gnawing code is present, the one that appeared "first" (i.e., in the Modification1 column) was kept.

Butchering This is a duplication of data contained in the three "Modification" columns that pertain to butchering. Crow Canyon's Modification coding sheet defines one gnawing classes: K — Cutmarks.
