In addition, archaeologists water-screened soil samples from select proveniences through 6 mm standard and ¤ne mesh hardware to recover micro®ora and microfauna (Egloff and Reed 1980:132).

If and when excavators did save fauna they chose fairly complete specimens easily identi¤able to animal species less common than deer such as bear, wapiti, or dog. It is well known that handpicking severely biases species representation as well as the skeletal elements recovered (Payne 1972, 1975). Samples biased by lack of sieving also compromise quantitative comparisons with faunal assemblages recovered by screening methods (Shaffer 1992). Due to these biases I elected not to analyze the faunal material from the 1971–74 excavations.
