Abstract:
By extracting lipids from potsherds and determining the 13C of the most abundant fatty acids, degraded fats from ruminant animals, such as cattle, and non-ruminant animals, such as pigs, can be distinguished. The authors use this phenomenon to investigate Late Neolithic pig exploitation and find that the pig `signature' was more frequently found among residues from Grooved Ware than other prehistoric pottery types.
