Faunal Exploitation Practices at the Steve Perkins Site, a Lowland Virgin Branch Puebloan Site Located in Southern Nevada
To date, there has been little research conducted concerning the faunal exploitation practices of the Lowland Virgin Branch Puebloans in Southern Nevada. This project examines faunal remains from the multi-component Steve Perkins site, which was occupied from the Basketmaker II period (A.D. 400-800) to the Pueblo II period (A.D. 1000-1150). This project aims to provide insight into the subsistence strategies and exchange economies of the Lowland Virgin Branch Puebloans. By identifying the faunal remains, subsistence practices and exchange networks are evaluated. With transitions from the more mobile Basketmaker II period to the sedentary Pueblo II period, faunal assemblages are expected to shift to reflect the more sedentary lifestyle.
