Description

Abstract:

The recent emergency excavations directed by the “Soprintendenza per i Beni Archeologici per le Province di Sassari e di Nuoro” in the town of Sassari (Sardinia) have released several faunal remains from medieval and postmedieval contexts.

This work presents preliminary data concerning the study of these archaeozoological remains in order to outline the faunal situation in Sassari between the XIIth and the XVIIIth centuries.

The domestic animals are the more represented and the several butchery cut marks show the alimentary character of most of these remains; bones and animal hard tissues were often worked.

Goat-sheep and cattle are the most represented species; while pig results in lower number, but costantly present. Among the wild species, red deer is the most common, but fallow deer and fox have also been identified.

Mollusca, fishes and domestic birds have been find in several stratigraphic levels.
