Archaeofaunal Remains from Pueblo Blanco

Part of the Pueblo Blanco Archaeological project

Author(s): Tiffany Clark

Year: 2000


This chapter presents the results of an analysis of archaeofaunal remains from the 1999 and 2000 excavations at Pueblo Blanco (LA 51). Archaeological investigations by Arizona State University resulted in the recovery of a large, well-preserved faunal assemblage containing over 20,000 identified specimens from early, intermediate, and late period contexts. In this chapter, an overview of the taxonomic composition of the assemblage is first presented and diversity and proportional distributions of fauna are described. This general discussion is followed by a study of the temporal trends in animal exploitation patterns and procurement practices.
