Sheep/Goat bones

We found a pretty cool thing this week in Grid 51 - a big pile of bones! The volunteer who was digging in that area was pretty surprised when they came up, especially since there were so many of them together. When we find animal bones in the field, we call our zooarchaeologists to come out and tell us why they think they are there. Listen as one of our specialists, Paula, tells you about the sheep/goat bone pile (click this link to see why these are called sheep/goat bones).
