Summary

The study of bone modifications in archaeology becomes an important source of information for understanding aspects of food anthropology and extinct human groups, as well as it improves the knowledge of these aspects in poorly documented historical stages. This applies to the first moments of Spanish colonization in the north of Holguin. This paper includes elements of the exploitation of faunal resources in two marked Indo-Hispanic archaeological contexts in northeastern Cuba: Chorro de Maita and Alcala. Special emphasis is made in the study of bone modifications in Euro-Asian fauna because of anthropic actions, offering an anthropological approach to the archaeozoological studies
