Abstract [en]

Within the field of archaeology, animal bones from the post-medieval era have often been treated with little interest. The potential information that could be gained from studying osteological materials is not appreciated. Historical text from that period in time is thought to give information about historical events or places. However, information about different activities related to diet or economy, which are often missing from the historical sources, could instead be gained by analysing osteological materials. The material used in the proposed study consists of animal bones derived from a 17th century military facility located in Ljusdal, Hälsingland. Since the material consists of a relatively small amount of bones, an in depth analysis is possible. The analysis will reveal important information about activities related to economy in the military facility. The proposed study could establish animal bones as an important material that should be analysed when studying our more recent history.
