Abstract or Summary
  • Site 35JA42 represents the first protohistoric village complex excavated in Southwest Oregon. Analyses of animal bones recovered from the site offer the first significant insights into human subsistence behaviors in this region. Although the faunal assemblage is extremely fragmented, detailed zooarchaeological analysis indicates that deer were the primary meat resource while elk, bear, mountain lion, and gray fox were secondary. Animal carcasses were disarticulated by percussion and the bones subsequently processed for marrow and soup/grease. The faunal data also suggest that one house was used as a refuse dump by later occupants and that the site was re-occupied by the same family or families who returned to the site and constructed new houses over several consecutive winters.
