Subject: Uses For Faunal Bones That Will Not Be Curated

From:	Shereen Lerner  

Archaeological Consulting Services, Ltd. is seeking individuals or
research institutions interesting in acquiring faunal materials. ACS
completed a year-long excavation of the Arizona Diamondbacks stadium
area in downtown Phoenix. Extremely large numbers of faunal material
were collected. The majority of the bone is associated with the historic
period of downtown Phoenix (ranging in dates from the late 1800s to mid
1940s).

While much of this material is being analyzed, not all of it can be
curated. We have a curation agreement with the Phoenix Museum of History
and they do not have the space to house all of the material. A select
sample will be curated at the museum.

We realize this is an unusual request but are looking to find a use
for the faunal bones that cannot be curated. If you are interested in
acquiring some of the collection for use in teaching or as a sample of
varied types of animal bone used during the historic period, please contact
Shereen Lerner at ACS (602) 894-5477.
