Abstract

This paper reports on the mammal, bird and reptile remains recovered during excavations at Ayn Qasiyya in the 2005-2008 seasons. Large quantities of animal bones from three trenches with comparable stratigraphic sequences (Areas A, B and D; total area 48m2) (Richter et al. 2009a) were recorded by location, locus and east and west bearings. The analyses reported here not only throw light on the subsistence economy and procurement strategies employed by people living at the site but also allows the Ayn Qasiyya fauna to be considered alongside data gathered from other Early and Middle Epipalaeolithic sites in the Azraq Basin. A number of these were excavated during the late 1970’s, 1980’s and early 1990s including the large-scale group aggregation locations sites Kharaneh IV and Wadi Jilat 6 (Martin et al. 2010).
