Abstract:

The topic of the paper concern the preliminary results of the identification of ichthyological materials uncovered in the late Mesolithic site at Dabki, related to the Ertebolle societies and the Funel Beaker Culture. About 100 000 fish bones were discovered during the excavation carried out by the Polish Academy of Sciences and University in Greisfwald in 2004-2007. The archaeoichthyological remains were subjected to a macroscopic analysis. Except of the species and anatomical classification of bone elements, detailed analysis of anatomical distribution, size reconstruction and season of capture were considered. Preliminary research has shown that the material is rich in fish taxa and anatomical elements. In the Polish context there is the first so number fish material. Therefore, research of the fish remains will allow to document the significance of fish and fishing in the subsistence economy and it will support consideration on environmental changes in the micro region of Dabki between 5100 and 3600 B.C.
