Today's quest is to find some information on bone modification, such as scratches and fractures, which are indicative of environment of deposition, presence of other fauna etc... Most of the resources I've found so far are human-centric, with regards to archaeology. It'll be interesting if I find features in Isisfordia duncani and the other Isisford fauna, which have been previously described in archaeological research as "human tool marks"...
