Preliminary Assessment Report of the Archaeofauna from KNK 203 (E 74), a Norse Farm in the Eastern Settlement, Greenland
Part of the North Atlantic Biocultural Organization (NABO) project
The archaeofauna is still under study, and this report presents only a partial overview of the collection. However, a number of observations can be made at this stage:
• The collection has been subject to severe attrition from freeze-thaw cycling and repeated flooding and drying. Only the most dense bone elements survive, and even teeth are badly preserved in some contexts.
• While the conditions of preservation will limit the comparative value of the E74 archaeofauna and will probably make a detailed context by context analysis impractical, the collection does have considerable value as a fully sieved archaeofauna from a small inland farm. With care, some broad conclusions about economy can probably be reasonably made.
