Dr. Elizabeth Moore, curator of archaeology at VMNH, gave a presentation last night to the Roanoke Chapter of the Archeological Society of Virginia on on the faunal remains from the Great Neck Site in Virginia Beach. The Great Neck site is a Native American settlement that dates to ca. A.D. 400. Attendees learned how to identify some of the more common remains in the assemblage, including shark, ray, various fishes, oyster, clam, crab, and more. Chapter members will continue working on the sample and the resulting data will be incorporated into the analysis and interpretation of the site.
