(2005) 'Puffins, pigs, cod, and barley : palaeoeconomy at Undir Junkarinsfløtti, Sandoy, Faroe.', Environmental archaeology., 10 (2). pp. 179-197.
This paper reports on the zooarchaeological and archaeobotanical remains from the first season of excavations at the Norse period site at Undir Junakarinsfløtti in the Faroe islands. These remains represent the first zooarchaeological analysis undertaken for the Faroes and only the third archaeobotanical assemblage published from the islands. The excavated deposits are described and the key findings from the palaeoenvironmental remains highlighted within the context of the wider North Atlantic environmental archaeology of the Norse period.
