Resumo: The 1992 and 1993 excavations of Roman to Medieval layers of Conimbriga, in central Portugal, uncovered a Roman amphitheatre that pre-dated the Late Roman wall. Layers dated to the late Roman (3rd - 4th Cent. AD), late Antiquity (6th-7th Cent. AD) and Islamic (7th-11th Cent. AD) periods were also exposed. Almost 3000 animal bones were recovered. Because faunal assemblages are scarce in central Portuguese Roman to Medieval sites, particularly for the Moslem period, these bones presented a unique opportunity to compare Roman and Moslem dietary preferences, the non-food uses of animals, and livestock breeding practices. Mammal bones, particularly cattle, dominated the assemblage, followed by pig and sheep. The presence of wild boar within Moslem contexts suggests that the religious dietary rules were not strictly applied. The presence of wild boar as well as rabbit and red deer, further provide evidence for hunting.
