Animal remains will be collected in the trenches and in the sieves, and will be identified to species.
The aim of the research is to document the food procurement strategies of the inhabitants of the site (importance of domestic stock keeping, of hunting and of fishing), and to reconstruct the former environment.
Careful collection of the faunal remains in the trench and through sieving with the sieving and flotation machine is followed by identification of the bones. Enigmatic specimens are set aside for export and identification through comparison with the more extensive reference collections in Belgium.
