GIS is being used increasingly in archaeology today, but can also enhance the understanding-through intrasite analysis-of sites excavated before GIS became popular. The Bell site (47-Wn-9), in Winnebago County, Wisconsin, is one such site. The faunal remains collected there represent two short, distinct occupation periods and distinct cultural traditions. An analysis of the quantity, artifact associations, and provenience of faunal remains recovered can add to the established understanding of the site's utilization, and point the way to areas where further analysis can be conducted.
