Zooarchaeological Analysis of Vertebrate Remains from the Santa Cruz Coast
Author(s): Gabriel Sanchez
This is an abstract from the "Current Insights into Pyrodiversity and Seascape Management on the Central California Coast" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
Recent indigenous, eco-archaeological, and low-impact field research on the Central California Coast resulted in the excavation of four sites that were inhabited from the mid-Holocene to the contact period. Vertebrate remains from these sites were sampled using fine-grained recovery methods including flotation and sorted and analyzed to the ≥ 1 mm size fraction. This paper highlights the results of vertebrate and taphonomic analyses of these sites and how these data contribute to our understanding of human-environmental relationships on the central California Coast.
