BOTMATERIAAL VAN EEN BRONSTIJDVINDPLAATS AAN DE WESER BIJ RODENKIRCHEN
The bones from a farm dating to the Late Bronze Age, excavated at Rodenkirchen, indicate that cattle was the most important domesticated animal. Other animals were sheep and/or goat, pig, horse and dog. Cattle were held primarily for their milk and for fraction, while sheep and/or goat were kept for their milk and wool. Hunting was not much practised. To supplement their diet the people of the Bronze Age rural settlement did go fishing.
