The Two Shores Of An Eden by Jack Sneddon
By Steve White @ 21:11 :: 755 Views :: 0 Comments :: General Archaeology

Below  I have taken the opportunity to delineate what I have called "The two shores of an Eden" superimposed on the excellent "Soils of Scotland"map as published in www.snh.gov.uk/docs/A337648.pdf (Please note that my delineation marks are only intended to show roughly the body of Scotland which lies between the Great Glen (red line) and Highland boundary (black line) faults and the soils which they contain).

Palaeolithic Scotland today by Jack Sneddon
By Steve White @ 13:20 :: 6995 Views :: 5 Comments :: :: General Archaeology

1994 is an important year for Palaeolithic Scotland as it was then that the two artefacts shown in this article were found. They lay within 1/4 of a mile of one another on the Moss of Cruden but on completely different terrain.

Although they were found to be separated by only a small dimension in space, they are separated in time by thousands of years!

EXTANT PALAEOLITHIC SCOTLAND

Introduction

Moraineless Buchan, as described by Walton and recognised by Synge and Charlesworth, forms a heart shaped enclave almost at the tip of that "Knuckle" of our island bounded by the Moray Firth and the North Sea.

The area, of some 1,000 square miles, is of significant importance as within its boundaries are soils that have lain undisturbed by ice scouring for some 250,000 years and longer.

Three sites of excavation, concentrated on the Moss of Cruden (Circa 40 square miles), have uncovered numerous flints that show an affinity with Mousterian modification and earlier.

Food of the Ancients by Jacqui Wood
By Steve White @ 11:53 :: 15549 Views :: 0 Comments :: General Archaeology

An interview with Jacqui Wood the world’s expert in Prehistoric Cooking. How did our prehistoric ancestors cook before we had pots and pans? Well 8,000 years ago you could have clay baked your food!  At many archaeological sites in Europe large quantities of crumbly burnt clay has been discovered such as at Lowland Point in Cornwall.

Bunsen burners or cheese moulds? by Jacqui Wood
By Steve White @ 11:42 :: 17327 Views :: 2 Comments :: General Archaeology

Jacqui Wood, who runs the experimental Celtic Village in Cornwall, is always experimenting. Recently she has been looking at the strange pots with holes in them that are normally labelled as 'cheese strainers'. Could there possibly be a rather different interpretation?

This is the transcript from an article in Current Archaeology no 191 by Jacqui Wood.

Food and Drink in European Prehistory by Jacqui Wood
By Steve White @ 20:18 :: 21102 Views :: 0 Comments :: General Archaeology

Abstract: There is a wealth of archaeological evidence, from bones excavated in prehistoric middens, piles of fruit stones and sea shells, that give us concrete indications of food consumed at various prehistoric sites around Europe. In addition to this information, we have pollen analysis from settlement sites and charred plant macrofossils. Wetland archaeology informs us in much more detail about not only the types of foods that were being eaten in prehistory but also, in some cases, their cooking techniques. This paper will explore whether or not a popular misconception about the daily diet in prehistory has its roots in the analysis of stomach contents of various bog bodies found in Europe.

Keywords: bog bodies, cooking techniques, ethnology, fogous, prehistoric Europe, salt production
