The looming question of housing the workforce: early workers' housing in the Derwent Valley (2017)

Zooarchaeology of Aðalstræti 14-16, 2001 Assessment Report of the Post-Medieval Contexts (2002)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Clayton Tinsley. Thomas McGovern.

Small samples of post-Medieval animal bone were collected during the excavations of the Aðalstræti 14-16 site in 2001. This second stage assessment presents an overview of these Zooarchaeological materials and may indicate the value of further analysis of some of these contexts in future. The major contexts could be divided stratigraphically into four major phases (modern, 19th c., post- 1764 , and pre -1764 fire horizon). Only the two 18th century phases produced partially quantifiable sample...
