The function of the Holsteinian period Cannstatter Bunker site is discussed, based on large mammals remains. Comparison with several other Holsteinian Jaunas shows a clear selection of the osteological mate rial. The inhabitants of the site were specialized hunters. Aurochs and steppe bisons were their jàmurite preys. The red deer was an important nutrional complement. The analvsis r~f the frequencies rif skeletal elements indicates that animais were butchered outside of the site. Only the rich meaty parts were brought back. We note also that deer antlers were usedfor artefacts. The Cannstatter Bunker site seems therefore to have been used as a central halt station.
