Shields Pueblo faunal dataset

Summary

Faunal data from Shields Pueblo, excavated by Crow Canyon Archaeological Center 1997-2000. Faunal analysis was by Tiffany A. Rawlings and Jonathan C. Driver in 2006, 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. Site dates are AD 775-1300, fauna is from the period AD 1020-1280. Users should reference both this dataset and Rawlings' 2006 dissertation (available on tDAR), which has additional information on the faunal assemblage. Additional information on Shields Pueblo is available on the web at http://crowcanyon.org/publications/shields_pueblo.asp.
