Viking Age Port of Trade in Gotland, Sweden: Understanding Inter- and Intra-site Logistics through Faunal Analysis
Author(s): Gwen Bakke
This is an abstract from the "SAA 2019: General Sessions" session, at the 84th annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology.
This study examines human-animal relations in the context of a Viking Age (9th to 11th century) port of trade and farming settlement of Ridanäs located in Gotland, Sweden. The objective is to gain an understanding of inter- and intra-site interactions through the faunal data. The primary questions focus on subsistence strategies, trade connections, socioeconomic conditions, and animal husbandry practices that were occurring at the archaeological site during the latter end of the Viking Age. These questions were answered through a zooarchaeological analysis of the faunal remains from two contexts at what is now known as the Fröjel Parish, Gotland.
