In addition to describing the ways in which individual species of animals were procured and utilized by the Indians, Lawson provided some additional information useful for interpreting the two faunal assemblages. He mentioned that the Indians "boil and roast their Meat extraordinary much, and eat abundance of Broth" (Lefler 1967:231). He also stated that "All the Indians hereabouts carefully preserve the Bones of the Flesh they eat, and burn them, as being of the Opinion, that if they omitted that custom, the game would leave their Country, and they should not be able to maintain themselves by their Hunting" (Lefler 1967:58). Both of these statements provide information that is helpful in evaluating how accurately the faunal assemblages from the Wall and Fredricks sites reflect the original assemblages of bone produced at these sites and in interpreting any patterns observed in the surviving archaeological assemblages.

Nearly every species identified in the faunal assemblages from the Wall and Fredricks sites was mentioned by Lawson. Although Lawson's descriptions of the ways in which the Indians utilized these animals are not consistently detailed, they do provide information that cannot be obtained from the archaeological record alone.
