Contributions to Moa's Shellmound/RJ Zooarchaeology: Fish Microfossils Analysis
This study is the first presentation of the material from fish microfossils collected in Moa’s Shellmound, located in Saquarema, Rio de Janeiro state. Using a new technique of screen-washing associated with re-screening using different granulometric sizes, allowed the recovery of 1662 Euteleostean microteeth, in fossilization process by substitution. These were initially separated into nine types, which will be used in future for more refined taxonomic descriptions. Thus, contributing to increased information about the Moa’s Shellmound, considered one of the most important indicators of prehistoric fishermen populations who inhabited the brazilian coast.
