One key factor of archeology research is discovering the faunal bones at excavation sites and seeing what lived many years ago. Faunal remains are bones, hair, shells, and more, any piece of animal anatomy. Discovering the different types of bones at excavations in Florida can give archeologists a sense of the different species in this state that were utilized by humans in the past. This study is creating a visual guide and key for faunal bone artifacts in south Florida. The key will consist of photos of bone artifacts excavated in south Florida of different types of fish and other animals. Also, the key will describe the bones excavated so that people and scientists can know what the defining characteristics of different bones are. Creating this key will be helpful for any other researcher to teach how to identify archaeological bone.
