Typically, within archaeological contexts, animal bones are highly fragmented, leaving the zooarchaeologist with small pieces of an animal skeletal element. This fragmentation could be from both human and natural processes including: the butchering process, disposal practices, trampling, exposure to scavenging animals, and/or : Autumn Painter.

Klein and Kathryn Cruz-Uribe survey various measures of taxonomic abundance, review. The total of bones or bone fragments were examined. In 22 specimens there were noticed various abnormal skeletal changes in following animal species: cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, horses, donkeys and camels.

Pathological changes were noticed on the teeth, mandibles, joints of long bones and phalanxes. Animal bone assemblages are found on sites of all cultural traditions, providing information about human subsistence and behaviour, ranging from what people ate, how they farmed and what they traded, to how they positioned them­.

Because the interpretation of archaeological sites depends heavily on the analysis of surrounding materials—soils, artifacts, and floral and faunal remains—it is important that non-human remains be correctly distinguished from human bones, that distinctions between domesticated and wild or feral animals be made correctly, and that evidence.
