The faunal remains of Broglio di Trebisacce (southern Italy)
The article presents an interpretation of a faunal complex from a Middle Bronze Age context in southern Italy. The excavation area â€˜Sector 10â€™ of Broglio di Trebisacce has yielded a substantial number of animal bone remains attributable to three distinct sub-phases. On the basis of the archaeozoological analysis the organisation of the household economy and the role of the various domesticated and wild animal species found at the site are reconstructed, and an analysis is made of how the subsistence economy at Broglio changed between the different phases. This evidence is compared with that of two nearby settlements, whose archaeozoological data was previously published.
