The classification of bony pieces which were excavated from Jongdali archaeological site in Jeju was studied. The total number of bone remains were 81 pieces, in which 31 pieces were classified into animal bones. The animal species consisted of Cervus spp., Sus scrofa, Bos taurus and Equus caballus. This finding suggests that the major fauna in this peroid(B.C. 100 - A.D. 100) is wild boar, deer, horse and cattle.
