Zooarchaeology of Aðalstræti 14-16, 2001 Report of the Viking Period Animal
Part of the North Atlantic Biocultural Organization (NABO) project
The 2001 excavations of a Viking-Age hall at Aðalstræti 14-16 in downtown Reykjavík produced a small and highly fragmented collection of burned animal bone. The bone collection derived from the hall floor layers and was recovered through flotation and retention of 1 mm mesh sink fraction. Approximately 3 % of the collection could be identified, allowing for only the most basic quantification. Nevertheless, all the major Settlement Period domestic mammals are represented (Cattle, Caprine, Pig, Horse) as are tusks of what may be local Icelandic walrus.
