Comment mostly cattle and caprovines, lesser pig; much more goat than sheep, because the goat hair was woven into blankets or rugs. Caprovines and cattle were killed as adult animals, whereas suids were killed young, which indicates that pigs were held for meat, cattle and caprovines also for milk and wool. There were only few fish bones; other than that there was no hunting
