Summary

This poster discusses patterns of bone tool production and use in light of results from recent testing at six sites in the interior of southern Florida. More than 100 worked bone tools and production wastage were identified from the six sites dating from the Archaic to the Historic periods. The artifacts reveal patterns of bone tool production from various elements of Chondrichthyes (cartilaginous fishes), Reptilia, Aves, and Mammalia. Functional interpretations of the bone tools and production wastage along with the range of activities that likely took places on the sites will be discussed.
