The Two Shores Of An Eden by Jack Sneddon
By Steve White @ 21:11 :: 2379 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 :: 9795 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 :: 21189 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.

A new perspective on West Cornwall courtyard houses by Jacqui Wood
By Steve White @ 08:57 :: 16921 Views :: 0 Comments :: General Archaeology

This paper endeavours to put forward a workable hypothesis that courtyard houses were in fact large buildings having one large roof ( West Cornwall Galleried houses).

Bunsen burners or cheese moulds? by Jacqui Wood
By Steve White @ 11:42 :: 23843 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 :: 27577 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

Ownership and Inequality in the British Neolithic by Catherine Stevenson
By Steve White @ 12:24 :: 55177 Views :: 0 Comments :: General Archaeology

This dissertation will investigate ownership and inequality in the British Neolithic. The period of study covers a wide time frame, from 4000 BC to 2000 BC, and will focus on different aspects of archaeology – settlement and agriculture, burials, monuments, and warfare – across Britain. While this framework encompasses spatial and temporal variations, the constraints of this project, and a scarcity of specifically related literature, invites a broad approach using the most relevant archaeological examples.

Interpretations of the food sharing patterns at the Magdalenian settlement at Pincevent by Mary Lawson
By Steve White @ 20:47 :: 40672 Views :: 0 Comments :: General Archaeology

Food sharing practices are commonly recognised and discussed in ethnographic literature, however, food sharing among hunter gatherer groups archaeologically is much more difficult to recognise. Various theories have suggested reasons and motivations for food sharing, but these theories are often not testable archaeologically. Ethnographic analogy provides another method of analysing archaeological food sharing, but is not without its own problems. Food sharing has been proven to have taken place at Pincevent, level IV-20 by the refitting of reindeer bones.

Several methods are used to try and interpret the patterns of food sharing at Pincevent; a comparison with the Nunamiut concludes that the food sharing practices of the two are not exactly analogous, while the application of theoretical models for equal and unequal sharing shows the complexity of the food sharing practices at Pincevent.
