more evidence sw US prehistoric cannibalism - taboo topic

http://durangoherald.com/article/20101203/NEWS01/712039...

<snip>

The number of bone fragments 15,000 is more than has been documented at any other previously studied ancestral Puebloan site. They date to around 800 A.D., the Pueblo I period.

Despite the large number, they are believed to have come from only about 35 people.

There was evidence of breaking and cutting off flesh, cooking and pulverizing, said archaeologist Jim Potter, principal investigator with SWCA Environmental Consultants, who led the excavations.

The topic of cannibalism among the ancestral Puebloans popularly known as the Anasazi has been discussed widely among archaeologists since at least 1969, when a then-young archaeologist from Arizona State University, Christie Turner II, presented findings and a paper in Santa Fe at an archaeological conference.

Turner's first name is spelled Christy
