The paper presents the results of the study of animal remains from two different spaces of the Late Bronze settlement of Aradetis Orgora, Georgia, which we interpret as areas of disposal for the remains of butchering activities. The results of the analysis are compared both with contexts of different periods and areas, which yielded similar butchery disposal remains, and, for a general assessment of animal economy at the Aradetis Orgora site, with palaeofaunal data from other sites of the highland regions of the Near East. It shows how intra-site investigation of faunal remains in the framework of a deep interaction between archaeologists and bone specialists is crucial for understanding the precise nature of different bone recovery contexts, and allows to better understand both the use of individual spaces and the general choices of past animal economy.

Abstract

The paper presents the results of the study of animal remains from two different spaces of the Late Bronze settlement of Aradetis Orgora, Georgia, which we interpret as areas of disposal for the remains of butchering activities. The results of the analysis are compared both with contexts of different periods and areas, which yielded similar butchery disposal remains, and, for a general assessment of animal economy at the Aradetis Orgora site, with palaeofaunal data from other sites of the highland regions of the Near East. It shows how intra-site investigation of faunal remains in the framework of a deep interaction between archaeologists and bone specialists is crucial for understanding the precise nature of different bone recovery contexts, and allows to better understand both the use of individual spaces and the general choices of past animal economy.
