Brief description

The archaeological fish-bone images collection contains images of selected diagnostic anatomical elements from fish taxa commonly found on archaeological sites in the Sydney region, supplemented by taxa of the same family or genus from elsewhere where modern reference skeletons of Sydney taxa were not readily available. Scientific terminology and common names follow the Australian Museum Fish Site. Coding for taxa and anatomical parts were devised by Sarah Colley as part of the Sydney Fish Project archaeological research project. The taxonomy of modern specimens in the Australian National University and University of Sydney reference collections was copied from current collection catalogues. No attempt has been made to verify their accuracy at this stage. Archaeological specimens were matched against examples available in the Australian National University and University of Sydney reference collections, which do not currently contain every possible fish taxon from the Sydney region. Where no exact match could be found the taxon has been classified as 'unknown' at this stage. Some identifications of archaeological specimens are tentative at this stage.

Presentation of the collection is a partnership initiative of the University of Sydney Library and Dr. Sarah Colley, to support archaeological research. Digitisation was funded under the University of Sydney Faculty of Arts Research Support Scheme. Dr. Sarah Colley created and described the content, and additional content was also provided by the Australian National University. Russell Workman photographed the physical specimens.
