Nine Gal Tavern Faunal Analysis

Author(s): Zachary Boyer

Year: 2018


Over 400 pieces of bone and eggshell were collected during excavation at the Nine Gal Tavern site (11CH541) located in western Champaign County, Illinois in 1987 and 1991 by a team led by archaeologist Lenville Stelle. The majority of the remains analyzed were recovered within feature context in the immediate vicinity of the established Nine Gal Tavern structure. The purpose of this paper is to describe the identification of these faunal remains which are housed at the Anthropology Program at Parkland College. The identification of these remains was carried out as part of an Honors Project under the supervision of Steven Kuehn, Zooarchaeologist at the Illinois State Archaeological Survey (ISAS).
