Food and Family: Comparing Residential Structures at Two Fremont Sites in Utah Valley
Excavations conducted by Brigham Young University’s Field Schools from 2010-2015 have uncovered several examples of Fremont residential architecture at two sites around Utah Lake. At least five residential structures have been excavated at Wolf Village (42UT273), a site dating to A.D. 900-1208, while one residential pithouse was uncovered at the Hinckley Mounds site (42UT111). Recent research at these sites has focused on architecture and the use of space, particularly in regards to communal architecture. This paper seeks to add to these investigations by comparing the faunal assemblages from the residential structures at both sites and how each was utilizing local lake, marshland, and mountain resources.
