Event description
Charlotte Scull shares her analysis of the animal bones excavated at Rendlesham and what this can tell us about the site.

About this Event

Animals were at the centre of Anglo-Saxon culture, from noble horses to hunting dogs to the ordinary pigs and chickens, the animals excavated at Rendlesham would have not only been used for survival but were also symbols of wealth and power. Zooarchaeological evidence can answer some of the big questions surrounding land use, husbandry, and exchange, as well as help us to understand the beliefs and daily lives of the people living at Rendlesham. This talk will outline some of the principles and methods of zooarchaeological analysis and explain what they can tell us about the animal bone excavated at Rendlesham.

The talk is free and will be held live online with a question and answer session.
