EOL Computational Data Challenge: Primary Zooarchaeology Dataset Version 2

Data Table Summary
Count of Fields (Columns)
Count of Rows

This is the main data table describing biological taxonomy bone elements (anatomical entities) bone fusion and physiological sex determinations for zooarchaeological data from several Epipaleolithic - Chalcolithic sites in Anatolia. These data integrated and published in Open Context represent one outcome of the Encyclopedia of Life Computational Data Challenge a project led by Benjamin Arrbuckle in collaboration with the zooarchaeologists listed here.

To promote interoperability and facilitate reuse Open Context editors annotated these data with Encyclopedia of Life (EOL) and UBERON identifiers. In addition Open Context editors related relevant data to the "Open Context Zooarchaeology" ontology / controlled vocabulary.

These data presented in this table mainly represent annotations referencing controlled vocabularies made by Open Context editors and checked by data contributors. The source values used to make annotations are provided in "[Source value]" fields. Datasets as originally described by the contributing researchers are also available by following links to project documentation.

Note: Open Context editors generated this updated table in response to updates provided by contributors. Arek Marciniak provided additional context information for Çatalhöyük Area TP. This table includes only records of bones from more secure contexts. In addition this table includes records from Menteşe Höyük. Please see this related table for an earlier version of these data.
