Abstract

In October of 2017 a small crew of students excavated Wilde Cave. The floor of this lava tube located in Idaho was littered with hundreds of faunal samples. As an Honors Capstone Research Project the bone remains were collected and analyzed. We spent two days collecting the samples along with their coordinates. Returning to USU, the osteological specimens were cleaned, labeled, identified, and cataloged. Following the completion of identifying and cataloging, the information was analyzed to understand the statistical relationships between the specimens.
