Archaeozoological Study of Faunal Remains from two Cucutenian Sites: Creţeşti-La Intersecţie and Lohan-Camping (Vaslui County)

The bone remains analysed from Creţesti - La intersecţie were unearthed during the archaeological excavation of 2014. The faunal remains originating from the ancient food garbage were found into two kitchen midden dated from Cucuteni AB. Some animal bones from this site were studied before in another two zooarchaeological reports, with similar results: the fauna is not very diversified, but obviously, the domestic animals are in dominance in the studied sample. Regarding this study, the situation is approximate the same and the identified taxa are: Bos taurus (cattle), Ovis aries (sheep), Capra hircus (goat), Ovis aries/Capra hircus, Sus domesticus (pig), Cervus elaphus (red deer), Capreolus capreolus (roe deer), Bos primigenius (aurochs), Bos taurus/Bosprimigenius, Sus domesticus/Sus scrofa. Our results complete previous results about the site economy. Among the fragments there are also three bone tools: a scraper, an indeterminate bone tool and an awl. Another archaeological site analysed is Lohan-Camping (same year of archaeological excavation) dated in the same period, but poorer in diversity: Cervus elaphus, Equus sp., Bos taurus/Bos primigenius, Sus domesticus/Sus scrofa.
