Animal Bone Analysis in medieval Emden, Germany
Number of Views: 2245
Project / Collection Overview

This data set represents faunal remains from several excavations in the centre of the medieval town of Emden (Lower Saxony, Germany). The data set was used for the PhD thesis of Jessica Grimm (University of Groningen) with the title Animal keeping and the use of animal products in medieval Emden (Lower Saxony, Germany)

Grimm's research addressed questions concerning the development of animal husbandry and the use of animal products in the medieval period with the aim of obtaining a better understanding of the functions of a medieval town occupied by different groups of people and the contrast with the countryside over a period of about 900 years (9th-17th century). In addition to the thesis, preliminary reports of this study have also been published (GRIMM 2005, 2006 and 2008)
