Abstract: This poster examines vertebrate species from Fort Ancient archaeological sites in the Ohio River valley, which date to the Little Ice Age. They are compared to vertebrate species from archaeological sites, which predate the Little Ice Age and from modern contexts. The results of this comparison suggest that vertebrate species exhibited individual responses to climate change. The distribution of some species remained unchanged while others, such as bison exhibited dramatic changes in their bio-geographic ranges.
