Abstract. The excavation of the site of the. former Monson Motor Lodge in St. Augustine, FL yielded
faunal remains from contexts dated to the nineteenth century. These samples were analyzed to identify the
specific taxa present. Beyond the identity of the bones, several interpretive estimations were made from the sample, including MNI and biomass. In order to facilitate the estimation of total body weight, novel
allometric curves were generated from the comparative collection of the Georgia Museum of Natural
History for the fish Ariusfelis, Bagre marinus and Mugil sp.


1. Introduction

The history of St. Augustine, Florida can be divided into separate periods. This

report concerns faunal material recovered from what is estimated to be the second half of

the Second Spanish Period (ca. 1805-1820.) Records show the site was owned, at that

time, by Antonio Berta and the heirs to his property.1

The sample considered here came from Feature 183, a large trash pit, of Carl Halbirt's excavation of the former Monson Motor Lodge. The pit was separated into a number of layers, the fourth layer (FS 15-1.04) being the trash zone and of concern here.1 St. Augustine was founded in 1565 and is currently the longest continually

occupied settlement in North America. Much of the story of the city is concerned with the difficulty the colonists had in living in the New World. Though they are scarce, most letters from the colony to Spain concern attacks by rivals and the poor state of the food
