Abstract

Zooarchaeologists recognize that density-mediated attrition is a bias thatdemands consideration in the analysis of archaeofaunal samples. This paperpresents bone mineral density values (aereal and volumetric) for the wild turkey (Meleagris gallopavo) and represents the first application of Dual-energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DEXA) to birds. The relationship between density and the survivorship of avian skeletal elements and portions is demonstrated by examining 20 assemblages from the archaeological record of the northeastern United States. The results suggest that density may account for thedifferentia survivorship of least 35% of the samples tested. Further analysis of a single site demonstrates the importance of examining bone mineral density when interpreting past bird hunting and use.
