Abstract:
Nearly 20 000 bones of Roman and med date were studied, including samples obtained by sieving. They give evidence of systematic butchery on a commercial scale during late 2nd-early 3rd century, with beef (including smoked/cured joints) predominating. Very young lambs and piglets were also slaughtered. House mouse, black rat, and garden dormouse (Eliomys quercinus L), the latter probably imported from the Continent as a delicacy. Medieval bones were mixed domestic and craft/industrial debris, with goat horncores prominent. A large assemblage of frog bones was studied biometrically. A late Roman deposit of fish bones would suggest the production of fish sauce at St Mary Bishophill Junior, while the Rougier St medieval deposits showed a concentration on cod and similar fish.
