Abstract:
The report presents results from a study of bone assemblages recovered from 8-9th century deposits associated with Anglian occupation and from a medieval priory of the Gilbertine order. Anglian samples were characterised by a very low diversity of taxa, with cattle clearly predominant. There is evidence of the organized and selective slaughter of young pigs. It is argued that the Anglian occupation differed from later urban sites in its provisioning strategy, and that it may have been a specialized trading settlement. There is some discussion of food production and redistribution in the Anglian period, and comparisons are drawn with other sites of similar date. The priory gave few useful bone assemblages. Slowly-forming soil accumulations yielded a wide variety of small mammals, amphibians and reptiles, with food taxa dominated by cattle and herrings. Sixteenth century deposits associated with the Dissolution gave distinctive and diverse assemblages with a wide range of game birds and fish, similar to assemblages of similar date from elsewhere in York. Includes a brief resumé of `The archaeology of 46-54 Fishergate' by R L Kemp (211-20). Au(adp)
