The Harappan site of Girawad was excavated for a single season in 2006‐07 by excavators from Deccan College, Pune; MD University, Rohtak and Research Institute for Humanity and Nature, Japan to salvage fast‐vanishing archaeological record. This single culture site, circular in plan and 8 ha in area, lies 3 km to the east of the present village of Girawad. Altogether 41 trenches revealed 13 pitdwelling complexes with ceramics similar to Hakra Ware which portrays a regional variation that can roughly be dated to middle of Fourth Millennium BC. The faunal material (n=4671) from this site was analyzed at the Archaeozoology Laboratory at Deccan College, Pune following internationally standardized procedures. This paper throws light on the diverse faunal spectra and the role and contribution of different mammalian and non‐ mammalian species to the human subsistence at Girawad. Methods used include NISP, skeletal representation and a minute study of pre and post depositional bone modifications generated by anthropogenic and other causal agents in the background of their contexts.
