This data includes measurements and counts of faunal artifact bone elements collected using different size mesh screens. The faunal bone artifacts came from an excavation in Boca Raton, FL.


Steps to reproduce

Faunal (non-human) artifacts collect in the field with a 3.2 mm screen were counted by element type. In the lab those faunal bone artifacts were passed through a 3.2 mm screen and counted again. All fish spines and scales in each collection (3.2 mm and 6.4 mm) were measured with a digital ruler. See the linked presentation of the dataset for more nformation.
