Zooarchaeology of Domestic Activities at a Weeden Island Shell Ring in the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge
The purpose of this research is to examine different domestic activities at the Mound Field site (8Wa8), a Weeden Island shell ring in Wakulla County, Florida. Zooarchaeological analysis was conducted on the faunal remains recovered in 2016 from six excavation units at Mound Field. These units represent different hypothesized areas of domestic activities from across the site. The differential deposition of food remains may reveal more about the patterns of activities in which people participated, and can help to develop a more complete reconstruction of both the site and the environment.
