Preliminary Report on Vertebrate Faunal Remains from the Ojo Bonito Archaeological Project

Author(s): Tiffany Clark

Year: 1998

Summary

Excavations conducted by the Ojo Bonito Archaeological Project (OBAP) in 1987, 1988, and 1994 have recovered a relatively large and well-preserved faunal assemblage. This report presents the results of a preliminary study ofthe animal bone from these excavations. In the first part of analysis, an overview of the taxonomic composition of the OBAP assemblage is provided and the diversity and proportional distribution of identified fauna are described. More in-depth analyses of intra- and intersite assemblage variability are then undertaken in order to assess spatial and temporal differences in faunal procurement and utilization. These analyses are followed by a brief discussion of the various types ofcultural modification observed in the OBAP assemblage.
