ZALOG NEAR VERD. Stone Age hunters' camp at the western edge of the Ljubljansko barje
Borut TOŠKAN and Janez DIRJEC
The faunal analysis of the Mesolithic site of Zalog near Verd revealed the predominance of skeletal elements of red deer and wild boar. Considering the representation of individual (parts of) skeletal elements of the two cited species, the site may be defi ned as a hunters’ camp. The credibility of this interpretation, however, is undermined by the questionable representation of the sample as well as a high number of antler remains with obvious traces of working.
Key words: Slovenia, the Ljubljansko barje, Mesolithic, animal remains, hunters’ camp, antler tools
