Notes

Dr Sarah Colley and Chloè Weir work in the Department of Archaeology, School of Philosophical and Historical Inquiries, Sydney University.

They spent two days in late November 2004 working in the fish skeleton collection at the Alexandria storage facility.

Sarah and Chloè were comparing the bones from known species in the collection with fish bones excavated from a recent urban historical archaeological dig in Sydney.
