Att befolka en stadsdel. Pälsare i det medeltida kvarteret Blekhagen, Lund

Magnell, Ola LU (2006) In META: Medeltidsarkeologisk tidskrift 2006(4). p.19-33
Abstract
The paper discusses the generally limited of use of animal bones in Swedish medieval archaeology and the potential of osteological remains as a source of information about social, ideological and economic conditions in the past. Results from analysis of animal bones from the quarter Blekhagen in Lund are used as examples of how osteological remains can be used to identify social and economic conditions. The animal remains indicate a specialization in working with pelts of cats and lambs, based on frequency of species along with age and sex structures. A shift in the composition of the animal remains towards more ordinary food refuse coincides with historical sources of clergymen that moving to the site.
