Summary

This report provides initial analysis of the Siglunes faunal collections rescued in 2011 and 2012.

Currently, there are limited data sets available, mainly a breakdown of the major taxa, and selected fish elements, all gadids or members of the codfish family, and a majority thereof cod (Gadus morhua). One context from Mound E, 187/184, has been analyzed in its entirety. Radiocarbon Analysis places this context into the 14th c. Analysis of the marine fish remains from this context’s provides a direct comparative to the one from Gásir in Eyjafjörður.
