Summary
"This study explores the roles of animals in a rural community in the Roman-period civitas Batavorum. Large-scale excavations of two settlements and a cremation cemetery in Tiel-Passewaaij have resulted in an animal bone assemblage of around 30,000 fragments. Through comparing data from both settlement and cemetery of the same community, important new insights were reached. The role of livestock in the local economy, and the production of surplus products for the Roman market, is the first theme that is investigated. The second theme is the use of animals in rituals. Through the use of an explicit theoretical framework and innovative methods, such as a comparative contextual analysis, this study surpasses traditional animal bone reports and is of relevance to Roman archaeologists in general."--BOOK JACKET
