This chapter looks at the very rich faunal remains found by the South Asasif Project. It considers the nature and type of different deposits in three areas: the tombs of Karakhmun, Karabasken, and Irtieru. The findings suggest very heavy reuse of these tombs, resulting in a thick deposit of animal bones, primarily of cattle.

Keywords:   Faunal remains, Animal bones, Karakhmun, Karabasken, Irtieru, Reuse of tombs
