The Zooarchaeological Assemblage from the French School on Yefet Street, Yafo (Jaffa) / Dr. Nimrod Marom

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

A small assemblage of 158 identified animal bones was retrieved from Crusader- and late Ottoman-period contexts at the French School. The bone samples from both periods consisted mainly of cattle and caprines, as well as some pig, donkey, horse and chicken bones. The relative frequency of pig bones in the Ottoman period might point to a religious tolerance toward the consumption of equid and wild boar. This may attest to a poverty-stricken Muslim population, or to the presence of immigrants from the Maghrebi Islam.
