Distribution analysis of bone remains in the prehistoric site of Mondeval de Sora (Belluno - Italy): issues and proposals

By M.C. Turrini, F. Fontana, A. Guerreschi and U. Thun Hohenstein


This paper illustrates the methodology applied to the analysis of the spatial distribution of bone remains from a layer of Mondeval de Sora (Belluno - Italy). This is an exceptionally rich and well preserved high mountain site (2150 a.s.l.), with early Holocene deposits located in the eastern sector of the Italian Alps. The methodology developed has allowed to homogenize the number of remains collected by excavating the chosen layer with sub-grids of different sizes (10 cm, 20 cm and 33 cm) over the years. In addition it has been possible to assess on a quality level the impact of the error that is introduced when the construction of an isopleth map is preferred to a more accurate coropleth map
