Project Chicken Update

Author: C. Funk | May 29, 2015

The Zooarch Group performed Project Chicken Experiment 3 on April 26, 2015 . The chicken bones went immediately into the dermestid tank and they are cleaned and ready for analysis. We are noting butchery cut mark patterns, burning, and chewing of bones, but the study is focused on the packets of bones produced by individuals selecting, eating, and discarding portions of the cooked chickens.
