Here we present results of an analysis of faunal remains from Twin Rivers, Zambia recovered during the 1999 field season under the direction of Larry Barham.

Animal remains from the locality were divided into three provenance groups - A Block, F Block and G Block -and examined for taxonomic and taphonomic information.

This information is used to discuss the palaeoecology and site formation of these assemblages. This contribution examines the faunal remains from each assemblage in chronological order of the deposits. The identifications and characteristics of the bones from each recovered group of remains are described. The inferences about human behaviour and palaeoenvironment are discussed.
