The goal of this thesis is to analyze a faunal assemblage in order to improve knowledge of precontact Native American subsistence practices at the Wall site. Through the analysis of data from this assemblage, we can gain a better understanding of not only their diet, but also possible hunting techniques for precontact in the area. This analysis provides new information on the Wall site, and Native American archaeology in North Carolina as a whole, and helps us to better understand the archaeology of the surrounding area.
