"What's For Dinner? - 7,000 Years Ago"

What secrets do charcoal and burned limestone rock reveal about the selection and preparation of plant and animal foods available to a nomadic family living along the edge of the Edwards Plateau 7,000 years ago? This presentation will describe a domestic work space consisting of a small limestone hearth and pit, associated faunal remains, stone tools, carbonized plant remains and lipid residues that were recovered from a rockshelter on the John Barnhill ranch in Coryell County during 2018 Baylor University Archaeological Field School.
