Agriculture and Resource Procurement for the Castro Settlements of NW Iberia: Examination of Floatation Samples for the Castro Site of Bagunte
Author(s): Patricia Neuhoff-Malorzo
Collection and examination of botanical remains has led to evidence of the development of agriculture in conjunction with the collection or procurement of wild resources at a number of Castro sites across the NW of Portugal and Galicia. Evidence procured to date from a number of such sites stretching from the Galician Region of Spain to the site of Monte Mozinho near the municipality of Penafiel in Portugal covers a span of time from Early Bronze Age to Roman Period and exhibits a combination of crops produced for human consumption, fodder produced for pastoral practices, and wild resource procurement for diet supplementation. The location of Bagunte lends itself advantageously to both agricultural production and resource procurement for diet supplementation and fuel resources. This presentation will focus on the use of wood for fuel resources, obtained through examination of carbonized wood collected through floatation of soil samples amassed through excavation and the seed samples gathered during previous field seasons.
