Study of fish bones recovered from coastal archaeological sites requires careful taphonomic analysis in order to determine whether the fish bone assemblage is naturally or culturally derived, and how fish may have been processed by humans. We analysed a grey triggerfish (Balistes carolinensis) assemblage from Atlit-Yam, a submerged Pre-Pottery Neolithic site (8140–7550 ) off the Mediterranean coast of Israel, using multiple taphonomic criteria and quantitative analyses. The clumped… CONTINUE READING
