Abstract:
The fish remains have allowed for an interesting insight into the development of the fishing industry of Scotland, particularly in terms of the social, economic and religious aspects of life in the medieval and post-medieval periods in Edinburgh and the surrounding areas. With increasing populations strong markets quickly developed and Edinburgh with its developing importance must have provided a strong demand. Fish have played a considerable part in the development of the Scottish nation and their remains recovered from sites such as Holyrood are an important source of evidence to support the early historical records. The fish remains further demonstrate the important role of fish in Scotland's history, contributing invaluable nutrition to the diet of its population, while providing the country with a valuable export industry.
