The Foods of the Woods, the animals of Must Farm

An Online Talk organised by Peterborough Museum

Speaker: Vida Rajkovača, Cambridge Archaeological Unit

Amongst the site’s almost clichéd Late Bronze Age domesticity, the roundhouses and the pots, a remarkable collection of animal bone was found, revealing how the community engaged with the environment around them, the animals and their foodways. From the time of agricultural intensification, where livestock was reared and food was domestic, the unusually ‘wild’ Must Farm faunal assemblage casts new light on the domestic life in this swampy landscape. Perfectly captured in time, the richness of evidence also allowed us to get at how the food was collected, prepared and consumed. This talk covers the methods and the results of the zooarchaeological analysis, it explores the food choices and the relationship with animals in the site’s broader setting.
