Sand Canyon Locality site testing program faunal dataset

Summary

Faunal data from test excavations at thirteen sites in the Sand Canyon Locality, excavated by Crow Canyon Archaeological Center 1988-1991. Faunal analysis was by Jonathan C. Driver, Michael J. Brand, Lianne Lester, and Natalie D. Munro in 1999, 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. Additional information on these sites and their fauna is available on the web at http://crowcanyon.org/publications/site_testing_program.asp.
