Sažetak

Archaeologists, in most cases, neglect animal bones and teeth, which present common
material on archaeological sites. Analysis of archaeozoological material from Vu~edol
(Baden culture) and prehistoric cave site Vela spila on Kor~ula, has been applied to
stress the importance of that material (especially single animal teeth) in archaeozoological
samples. It is obvious that a higher percentage of single teeth influence the number
of identified animal species on particular sites. One species were identified only by
teeth. For the reconstruction of the environment and behavior of ancient peoples, every
evidence obtained from sites is important, and because of that sieving must be part of
every excavation.
