Our knowledge of subsistence patterns in Iron Age Britain is reasonably good in terms of crop husbandry, but much less is known about broad patterns of animal husbandry regimes. In this study, Ellen Hambleton developes a methodology for comparing faunal data from disparate assemblages and introduces ways of assessing inter- and intra-regional patterns. She highlights the chronological as well as geographical variations in the pattern of animal husbandry between c.750BC and AD50.
