No Bones About It: The Significance of Faunal Remains at an Archaeological Site

The analysis of faunal remains through zooarchaeological methods is an important way to supplement information about historical sites. The Skinner-Tinkham site, located in Barre Center, NY, is an example of how even preliminary analysis of the site's animal remains provides insight into the diet and subsistence, and perhaps the wealth and status, of people who once lived at this site. In this paper, these faunal assemblages and their relevance to the interpretation of this historical archaeological site are discussed.
