9,000-year-old cereal meals: new methods for the analysis of charred food remains from Çatalhöyük East (Turkey) (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Lara Gonzalez Carretero. Dorian Q. Fuller.

Remains of archaeological cereal preparations are often recovered from archaeological Neolithic sites across the Near East and Europe through flotation. These are recognizable as seemingly amorphous charred fragments of plant material. The study of these charred fragments of ancient meals is of considerable importance because the identification of their components allows the characterization of the nature of the food types represented, and their preparation, provides insights into past culinary...

Becoming Urban – Emerging Urban Food Culture in Early Modern Tornio, Northern Finland (2013)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Anna-Kaisa Salmi.

This paper focuses on emerging urban food culture in Tornio, a small town in Northern Finland, between AD 1621 and 1800. Tornio was founded in 1621 in Northern Finland, which at that time was a part of the Swedish kingdom. The population of the new urban centre was a mixture of local peasants and merchants from other towns of Sweden. Tornio was a dynamic boom town where people of different origins came together, forming a new urban community and a new urban food culture. Zooarchaeological...


Beyond Subsistence: Food consumption in the military garrison of San Juan de Puerto Rico from the 18th to 19th centuries (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Natasha Fernandez-Perez. Isabel Rivera-Collazo.

This case study explores how food consumption in the military garrison of San Juan de Puerto Rico played a role in the negotiation of status and identities during the Spanish colonial period. Since defense of the territories was the primary task, the military tended to have priority to the access of exotic foodstuffs, such as wheat products. Nevertheless, Puerto Rico was quickly relegated to the margins of the Spanish Empire and legal ships ceased to arrive in a constant mode. Thus, we want to...


Brunswick's Bakers: The Archaeological Investigation of a Dwelling and Bake Oven at Lot 35 in Brunswick Town State Historic Site (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Andrew J Holloway.

During the summer of 2016, students led by Dr. Charles Ewen excavated the proposed Edward Moseley Ruin (now the bake oven at Lot 35) at Brunswick Town State Historic Site. Instead of finding the house and associated buildings of Lot 34, the students uncovered the remains of structure N5 on Lot 35 along with an associated ballast oven. Later analysis of the historical record determined that the property was owned by Christopher and Elizabeth Cains until 1775 and then sold to Prudence McIlhenny....

DOCUMENT Full-Text Dominik Hagmann.

Zusammenfassung Seit 2012 befassen sich experimentalarchäologische Untersuchungen des Autors mit der (Re-)Produktion des antiken römischen Gerichtes „puls“. Es handelt sich hierbei um eine Getreidebreizubereitung, die nach literarischen Belegen als das antike römische „Nationalge- richt“ gesehen werden kann. Die puls ist hinsichtlich ihrer Rezepte vor allem literarisch durch den Agrarschriftsteller Cato und (besonders) durch eine dem legendären Gourmet und Gourmand Apicius zugeschriebene...

Entangled complexity: Spiro, religion, and food (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Dawn Rutecki.

Understanding past peoples – those living in different places, spaces and times – requires archaeologists to reorient how we see and experience the world. We have the ability to move beyond recording the physical traces of past lives to get to the central goal of our discipline – understanding how people lived, participated in and tied themselves to communities, and connected to larger systems. Instead of forming stagnant images of the past, we need to remember the dynamism of choices made and...

Excavating Slow Violence Across the Modern/Premodern Divide (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Amanda Logan.

Archaeology as a technique allows us to make visible processes of "slow violence" (Nixon 2011) that unfold over time, providing a critical temporal dimension to understanding how and why modern inequalities come to be. In this paper I attempt to reconcile why "prehistory" matters to understanding structural violence in recent times. While archaeologists of the contemporary and recent past have long used archaeology to make visible the experiences of structural violence among subaltern groups,...


Exchanging and Sharing Food In the Classic Maya polity of Motul de San José (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Kitty Emery. Antonia Foias. Erin Thornton.

Anthropologists often describe food as the cement that holds people together both by symbolizing shared values and by the practice of sharing food. But in Maya archaeology, "food" is also often assumed to have been acquired locally and consumed primarily at the family level, therefore having a limited role in creating and maintaining alliances except in special circumstances. In contrast, our recent interdisciplinary research at the Classic period Motul de San José polity, Guatemala, argues...

The Flavors Archaeobotany Forgot (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Christine A. Hastorf.

Archaeobotanists find herbaceous plants in their collected macrobotanical collections regularly. Usually they are associated with animal fodder and fuel. But what if they were condiments? Recently there has been more information on wild herbaceous plants and insects as part of rural people’s cuisines. These oft-hidden ingredients should be recalled when taxa lists are studied, as some could have been important if rarely used spices and flavoring ingredients. We see, for example, that some...


Food for the Ayllus: Plants Access and Social Meaning in the lowland Tiwanaku sites of Omo and Rio Muerto (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Giacomo Gaggio. Paul Goldstein.

Tiwanaku, one of the first Andean states, spread during the Middle Horizon (AD 500-1000) from the Bolivian Altiplano into the lowland territories of Cochabamba and Moquegua in order to acquire the resources that were lacking in the highlands, a strategy termed by Murra as the "vertical archipelago". Plants such as maize and coca were among the primary resources that the Tiwanaku sought in these valleys, and different social groups, ayllus or elites, were probably in charge of accessing and...

This poster examines the faunal materials excavated from a 19th-20th century cistern at a Texas-Alsatian homestead located in Medina County, Texas. This research seeks to expand on the knowledge of Texan-Alsatian food practices in Castroville, Texas by studying butchering marks and other evidence of meat consumption on the faunal material discarded by the occupants of the house in the 20th century. As a site occupied by Alsatian immigrants and their descendants, who occupied a middle...


Food preparation and status: ch’arki versus roasting at Chavin de Huantar (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Silvana Rosenfeld.

Based on the chronicles and ethnohistorical documents, the consumption of (more) camelid meat has been linked to groups of high status or rank in the Andes. However, were all camelid dishes created equal? At the site of Chavin de Huantar, previous (Miller and Burger 1995) and recent zooarchaeological investigations provide evidence for the consumption of ch’arki (traditional way to dry meat on the bone) and the consumption of roasted meat in different areas. Can the particular preparation of...


Foodscapes as Gendered Landscapes in West Africa (2018)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Amanda Logan. Dela Kuma.

Food is an integral part of how people interact with landscape, and tasks associated with food production, preparation, and consumption are often strongly gendered. Using gendered taskscapes (Logan and Cruz 2014) as a starting point, we forward the notion of foodscape as a lens through which to see the varied and multi-scalar forms that gender may take on a landscape. Using case studies from both ancient and modern West Africa, we examine how tracing food production, preparation, and consumption...


Foregrounding Food: Mixtec Cuisine, Identity, and Household Ritual at Late Postclassic Tututepec, Oaxaca (2019)
