Analysis of 2,314 bone items recovered from 14 features and surface midden at the Miller site (46-Ja-55), Jackson County, West Virginia, indicates a highly focal economy during a (probably) short-term, spring-summerfall occupation, Definite evidence of both winter occupation and maize agriculture is lacking, but neither possibility can be precluded. Although a small and uneven sample (54.5% of the bones were identifiable to species), the Miller site is comparable to other Fort Ancient assemblages.
