    Abstract

    The analysed faunal assemblages are coming from Tell AbuSuwwan Neolithic site in Jordan. Tell AbuSuwwan is one of the Neolithic mega-farming sites. Radiocarbon datings show a continuous occupation of the site from the Pre-pottery Neolithic A until the Pottery Neolithic. Archaeological excavation recovered 16194 faunal assemblages from Tell AbuSuwwan. Identified taxonomical specimens are 1950. Archaeozoological and taphonomical analyses were applied to reconstruct the paleo-economy and environment of Tell AbuSuwwan. First archaeozoological preservation of Tell AbuSuwwan faunal remains view presence of domestic sheep/goat faunal remains. Several wild animals species were found within the faunal assemblages like auroch, wild boar, gazelle and wild goat. During the faunal assemblages study a variety of animal hard tissues artefacts were found. 64 tools referable to different bone tools typologies have been recognized. These artifacts have been analysed to recognize the traces produced during their manufacturing. Then an experimental work has been carried out in order to reconstruct the manufacturing processes of Tell AbuSuwwan bone tools.
