Taphonomic study of bones

Vitrina 11
Taphonomy studies the transference of paleobiological material and/or paleobiological information from the biosphere to the lithosphere. In the case of bone assemblages present in archaeological sites it is important to understand the processes (either biotic or abiotic) that remains have been subjected to in order to determine the delivery agents, which can be cultural (human) or natural (natural death or nonhuman predators).
