0194 - What about the bones?

Well, in these layers affected by the ploughing the bones are not in good conditions, naturally.
This is an example of a skull. But important information may be retrieved, the remains may be dated and the teeth are there, to be used in the Sr isotopic studies to addressed human mobility.

Inclusively, a part of a foot was identified, suggesting that when we get to the preserved layers, anatomic connections might be present. This also shows that the ploughing displaced and upturned parts of the context, but didn’t disperse them in an absolutely incomprehensible way.
